On many level, Christmas has always been my favorite time of the year.
- It’s magical. The Christmas holiday always has that “magical” feel to it whether you’re a kid waiting to see what Santa will bring; or an adult who enjoys watching kids open their presents on Christmas morning.
- It’s inspirational. Creativity seems to soar around this time of the year; and of course, I’m usually too busy to do anything about them right away so it’s nice to keep a notebook handy to jot ideas down.
- It’s a time for remembering. The holidays, especially this year, have special connotations for me as they remind me of my Daddy. I have so many memories of him around Christmas. You never could tell who was the biggest kid: him, or me and my siblings. 🙂 He’s been gone for over two years now, and it still hurts to not have him here to spend it with us.
What about you? What makes this time of the year special for you?
