I used to love it as a kid. Not being able to go out to the living room and see what Santa left till 6am, that was the LAW. If we woke Mom up before that, we couldn't go out till 7, then 8, so all 5 of us were so quiet till 6. Hard work, but we did it. Angel
Most memorable christmas was the one that all of us kids got bikes. It didn't matter that I had no idea how to ride one, I had a BIKE!!!!
The older I got the more dissapointing they became.....sigh.
I wish there was some way to get that magic back.

Yes, I remember my "bike Christmas." It was exciting. We have the memory of those feelings. the challenge is to create them for others the way they were created for us. for our kids, our parents, our siblings, our significant others...I have to say that for me the excitement lies in food. Making it, or going out to the markets near Christmas to buy it. It's like London on Christmas Eve in Dicken's A Christmas Carol. It's the bustling of many preparing love for their families. Not the presents, though it's fun to give and receive. This is where I disagree with Neil. It IS better to give than receive (from Free Will). Besides, when you give you receive back; it's like a natural law I think. I love showing up to someone's home with a really great bottle of wine and the pie from the best bakery. I'm so happy to see everyone enjoy it, and I get to share in the pleasure myself.

Yeah, I'm with you on that. I host Christmas now for the whole family, and thats where my grown-up pleasure comes from now. Putting on a spread that you wouldn't believe and feeding everyone that comes throught my door Christmas Day.
But, wouldn't it be nice if one year somebody remembered the Red Rider BB gun for you? Huh?Tongue

"Life ain't like books.
Books got somebody writin' 'em and tryin' to entertain ya.
Life is more like a set of Legos.
Unless you take care of 'em, you lose a few pieces and you end up steppin' on 'em with bare feet.
You gotta take care of your life."
