So it really is Christmas time. Candies, cookies, homemade breads, and of course, presents. Christmas really has to be my favorite holiday. Christmas is magical. The lights, the peaceful Nativity scenes, the smell of pine, and the excitement of anticipation. It used to be that all I thought about is what I would get for Christmas. What would Santa bring me? Now that I’m older and have my own kids, the anticipation of seeing them open their presents kills me. Just because I’ve seen behind the curtain, and know that the true face of Santa is the one looking back at me in the mirror, doesn’t make all this any less magical. I see on TV all the things surrounding Christmas, making it more than it really is. Some people want to politicize it, others want to monetize it. Me? I ignore all that. Christmas is in my heart, and in my family’s heart and I just want to enjoy it. I hope you have a very Merry Christmas and a truly amazing New Year.
Oh, and one more thing, My favorite Christmas recipe.
- A little bit of presents
- A little too much food
- A whole lot of family
Mix together vigorously, and sit back and relax.
