The holiday season is my favorite time of year. As soon as Halloween is over, I begin my gift shopping and tune into the Hallmark Channel. While everyone else is complaining that the stores are rushing through the holidays too fast, I am reveling in Christmas music. If it were possible, I would climb into a Currier and Ives print and stay there until I was forced to return to reality in January.
As corny as it sounds, there really is something about the holiday season that seems to bring out the best in people. It reminds us of simpler times and conjures up storybook images of friends and family gathered in front of the fireplace drinking hot cocoa. Who doesn’t love that?
