it's the most wonderful time of the year

Yeah, it's been a while since I last posted anything. I blame it on school work's annoying tendency to fill every waking [and many a sleeping] hour with tests, studying, extensive reading assignments, papers, ect. But it's all good now, because Christmas break has arrived. Well, at least it has mostly arrived... I still have my Physics and Pre-cal classes this Monday, along with a midterm exam, but let's not focus on that. :)

I'm the biggest kid when it comes to Christmas. I'm one of those people whose whole year pretty much centers around Chrismas. I spend all of the Fall months [very] eagerly anticipating it, and once it's over my world feels crushed. Hot chocolate, snow, Christmas music, classic Christmas movies, and all that? My favorite. And then there're the many traditions. The present shopping and buying. The getting together with friends and family to eat all sorts of delicious things and exchange gifts. The Christmas caroling. The decorating of the Christmas tree. The hanging of the stockings. The stories of Santa Claus and the night before Christmas. And remembering the true story of Christmas. Of Bethleham, the star that guided the wisemen, the shepherds in the field, the manger in the lowly stable, and the little baby Jesus who was born into the world to save all who believe in him from sin. I never get tired of hearing that story.

There is nothing more magical as a child than sleeping next to the Christmas tree.

I hope you're having a blessed, magical December. :)
