It’s that time of year…

Christmas has always been my favorite time of year, but for different reasons every year.

When I was a baby, it meant nothing to me I’m sure. Presents and family, but it’s not like I really understood what was going on.

When I was a kid, it meant being out of school. And presents, and family.

When I was a teenager, it meant being out of school, presents, family, delicious food, and my birthday around the corner.

When I was in high school, it meant being out of school, presents, family, delicious food, my birthday around the corner, spending time with my friends, possible snow days, warmer clothes, and hot chocolate. 

When I went to college, it meant being out of school, presents, family, delicious food, my birthday around the corner, spending time with my friends, warmer clothes, hot chocolate, cute scarves and hats, Disneyland and fireworks, fake snow, travelling, plane rides, welcome hugs at the airport, and lights!

Now that I’m out of college, it means getting time off work, presents, family, delicious food, my birthday around the corner, spending time with my friends, warmer clothes, hot chocolate, cute scarves and hats, Disneyland and fireworks, fake snow, travelling, plane rides, welcome hugs at the airport, lights, alcohol, family dinners, wrapping presents, watching people kids light up as they open their presents, and being happy.

There are a lot of reasons to love Christmas, but I think overall, it’s the feeling of happiness I get just thinking about all the love and joy I feel this time of year.

Merry Christmas everyone! :)
