For many of us Christmas is a magical time of year and the spirit of the season fills our hearts. Often, we experience and see this season reflected through the lens of Christmases past. Memories of a long-ago holiday may pop up and make us smile or may make us sad, and determined to do things differently in the future. Whatever the case may be, each Christmas is an opportunity to make new memories with those people who are important in our lives. I remember being little and standing at my grandparent’s door looking outside at colored Christmas lights reflecting their many shades onto the snow drifted against the house and covering the yard. I was filled with anticipation and joy that night and I still call upon that special memory to get me into the spirit if I need a boost. Make some memories, they may be your best gift.
