I love winter. It's chilly and all of the lights look like little stars in the dark. The contrast of warmth and cold reflected in the colors around me always makes me feel super festive.
( I always wanted to live in a cottage, maybe in England or Denmark. Maybe it has fairies. Or not.)
There is just something about snow that makes it all more magical. Christmas overall is something I want my family to look forward to every year. Halloween may be fun, but Christmas is when everyone gets to sit around and eat and visit with one another.Bundled up and eating good food- how can it get any better than that? I'm sure my kids will say presents make it better, but for some reason it just doesn't feel the same when you get older.
No matter how you feel about the holidays, it's a great time to curl up with a book, whether it's to get away from your hectic schedule or to keep yourself busy. Everyone has a crazy mix of emotions during Christmas, it's just that you have to remind yourself to look at it like you would have when you were ten, and don't forget to do it- no matter what.
