Christmas is:


Construction paper chains and bells, and children covered in glitter...
Decorations and driving around looking at the beautiful lights all over town
Spotting a lone decorated tree off the highway in the middle of nowhere
Mistletoe...
Red and green Hershey's kisses...
Surprising someone with freshly-baked cookies...
Evergreens tied on the top of the suv...
The Salvation Army bell ringers and bands...
Santa, grabbing a burger at Mickey D's...
Tempting aromas from the kitchen...
Wearing antlers and making strangers laugh...
The Sears Wish book....
Finding the perfect gift for the right person...
Bing Crosby, Handel, and Elvis...
Roasting marshmallows and a roaring fire...
Grandparents...
Sending and receiving cards from faraway friends and family...
Making costumes for the church play...
Traditions...
Reflections of the tree lights in the grandchildrens eyes...
Bringing out all the ornaments and all the decorations...
Memories...
Singing "The twelve days of Christmas" and remembering all the words...
Hearing a seven year old explain why he "kinda" believes in Santa Claus...
Making something gorgeous out of flour, salt, and water...
Parties and Family Reunions and Big Christmas Feasts...
Being generous, creative cheerfully gluttonous, spirited, festive, reflective, and totally jolly...
Christmas is.... everything that makes life wonderful!
