I think we adults do everything we can to find that magic again every year. I know I do. As much as I do love Christmas and being with family and friends and celebrating and finding good cheer everywhere you go, it isn't the same kind of magic. Once you understand all the ins and outs of magic, it no longer holds the same allure. It's still fun but it's not the same.
So this Christmas we are getting ready for family to come home and to gather altogether on Christmas Eve. We'll have favorite foods and stockings and fudge and cake. Some will go to church and some will stay home. We like colored Christmas light inside and out and presents all around. It's just so much fun to be together and play and I can't wait.
I can easily go to sleep on Christmas Eve. I don't have to play hard all day to try to get sleepy and tired. Magic is not coming Christmas morning but a wondrous, memorable and fun day is and I can't wait!
