Yuletide 26 July 2016

Christmas is my favorite holiday and time-of-year. I love the whole season. I love the music and that it plays everywhere you go. I love the spirit whereby an actual change seems to come over people and they are much friendlier and more cheerful.

I love the anticipation during advent and the scripture. I love having time with family to relax, have some fun, and eat great food (Did I mention that already?!). I love Christmas lights and the way they make everything sparkle and they warm up the coldest nights.

Pine Angel!

I love Christmas cookies and remembering, as I bake and eat them. I love the Christmas tree and way it points to Christ. I love the way the tree holds the ornaments collected over many lifetimes and the silver tinsel all shiny in the

colored lights.

I love Christmas Eve and candlelight services, singing Silent Night in communion with others. I love to watch the Grinch cartoon and the way Little Cindy Lou Who rejoices even when everything’s been taken. And most of all, I love the joy of Christmas morning and celebrating the birth of Christ the Lord.
