Simply Having a Wonderful Christmas Time

Tuesday, December 25, 2007

What do you think is the best part of Christmas?

For me, it's not in going crazy shopping for friends and family… it's not really in decorating Christmas trees or cooking delicious food or entertaining guests. It's in the coziness of season. It's in the happy faces. It's in the pretty snow.
I especially love singing carols during this time of the year… dancing to the tunes of old Christmas classics. All of those songs bringing back good memories… heart-warming memories.

Remember “Driving Home for Christmas?” I listen to this song almost every time I am traveling home for the holidays.

I have some of my happiest moments with Jingle Bells. Signing it with friends at the top of my voice sometimes sitting in the café, at others on the road at 2am.

Holiday season brings so many goodies. I love the smiles I get from all over. The comforting touches. The smell of burning wood. The text messages and phone calls from friends around the country… I know there are Angels Among Us.

…and then Christmas is about romancing. The cozy coffee dates. The holding hands and kissing under the mistletoe… those endless late night phone calls. Signing “Let it Snow!” sitting by the fire.
.. and All I Want For Christmas Is You.

Of course, this time of the year is about memories. Last Christmas I Gave You My Heart… Need I say more? :-)

So, people have a Holly Jolly Christmas!!

*I am so full of Christmas carols right now… Hehe.

  18. Hi Raaji,
    What a wonderful way to string your favorite Christmas carols in your fantastic post. I could almost hear you singing as I read your post. You seem to have enjoyed your best Christmas. I'm happy for you that you had a wonderful Christmas time. Christmas is indeed a time for celebrations and merry making, and what's the best way to do it than doing it in the company of your most cherished friends. Be happy always and enjoy life. Enjoy the exuberance of youth. After the festivities, it's back again to you grind in school. Enjoy the holiday season. God bless and enjoy the most wonderful days of your life.

  19. hmmmm i had yet another sunny christmas this time and was wondering how we always associate christmas with snow and winter. here in india we don't get the christmassy feeling too much, even in delhi, though i was in chennai. but my home town calcutta is gorgeus during christmas time. i could feel it in the air. i remember shopping with mum and pestering her into buying candies,fortune cookies with mum and the yummy brownies n the plum cakes. sigh!
