Christmas is my favorite holiday because everyone is always so merry and in high spirits. It’s when families reunite to share good food and good cheer, gifts are exchanged, friends sip on hot chocolate together, lovers kiss under the mistletoe, gingerbread cookies are baked, and children listen to stories next to the fireplace. No matter who we are, young or old, Christmas will always carry a familiar juvenile notion and leave traces of childhood magic in the hearts of all touched.
The colorful reflection of holiday lights mirrored by the bright glint in our own eyes, the dash of glitter sprinkled amongst the pure white snowflakes falling into our hair (
let’s pretend that there’s snow where I live), the sound of laughter and the sound of bells ringing out into the quiet night air. So powerful is the unifying spirit of Christmas that during WWI, soldiers dropped their weapons and joined hands with their enemies on the front line, temporarily establishing peace on what had previously been a bloody battlefield. Merry Christmas!
