It’s been years since I can remember being excited about Christmas. I guess you could say the shine wore off somewhere along the way. But, having a child has helped me to see the wonder of the holiday again and to encourage him to enjoy the season.
We’ve made dozens of evening trips to look at the neighborhood lights and even taught him a few Christmas carols. He knows what Santa looks like, but I think he’s more fond of Frosty the Snowman at this point. He’s taken to calling out each time he sees whatever inflatable figure he finds – everywhere we are… In the car, in the store, in the house… everywhere.
