Oh, man, I love this month!
I love the snow, the colors, the sights and sounds. I love the palpable excitement you see in kids, the glow of the lights on the tree, the familiar music. I love the spirit of giving, the emphasis on the Savior, the deep sense of peace you feel on Christmas morning.
And while Christmas has become ridiculously commercialized, I do love the crowds, the bustle, the fuss, and the messy traffic.
And most of all, I love spending time with my family, eating enormous meals and mountains of foods that give cardiologists nightmares, and seeing that look in somebody's eyes when you've given them a gift they love - be it a necklace made with macaroni or a new Lexus (damn you, rich people).
To commemorate the Christmas season, I've changed the look of the blog a little bit. I hope you like it!
