The feelings of Christmas

Christmas Memories 2012

December 9, 2012
By MARY BURNS DEAS , The OBSERVER

There's something magical about the Christmas season regardless of one's age. The "Christmas Song" with the simple phrase "to kids from one to 92" expresses how its warmth, hospitality, and love of family and friends affects everyone. Children look forward to Santa and almost everyone enjoys gift giving, the holiday lights, special foods, a myriad of Christmas songs, and time with loved ones. Many can recall specific Christmases of the past, from that special toy as a child to experiences into adulthood, but for nearly all people, rather than a favorite memory, Christmas evokes feelings that come from the collection of all our Christmases. It's those feelings that we look forward to each year as we carry on traditions. Sometimes these emotions can be bittersweet for those dealing with the loss of a loved one, whether recent or in the past.
