Remembering Christmas’ past

I used to love the holidays.  The Christmas tree smelled so good and decorating was such a great family production; we spent hours placing tinsel strand by strand. There were gifts for everyone from everyone; tangible indicators of our mutual love.

I wonder what happened.  As everyone grew older we still all looked forward to getting together but the focus on material got a bit overwhelming.  There was just too much stuff.  I guess we became victims of the not so subtle marketing campaigns that seemed to take over Christmas.

If you’re wondering about a gift, I could really use……….actually I don’t need anything.santa shrine 3
