Christmas!

RE: Christmas!
Ahh, I long for those times once in awhile. No bills, no work, no stress. We were just kids playing with our cousins and our toys. I would stay over my grandparents' for at least a week until New Years. My grandfather was a teacher at Aviation High School in Long Island City, Queens, so he was off with us. When my little cousins would leave my brother and I would play with our toys and models (I loved to build model airplanes) later Christmas night. That hour before bedtime, when my grandmother would turn down the lights, Christmas songs from the 40's, 50's and 60's (not the overplayed nonsense they play now) on the stereo, which was it's own piece of furniture-was a peaceful time. I never wanted it to end. It was like that cool late summer day today when you realize tomorrow is autumn and the moment will soon be gone. It's joyful and melancholy all at the same time.
