You go through a stretch where Christmas means a little less, when its more about seeing friends over a school break, all of you coming home again, then it is about the wonder that it was when you were little. You enjoy the presents and the family gathering and the eating and drinking but its not the same.
Until you have your own little ones. They gasp when the Christmas tree is lit up for the first time and they wake up each morning giddy with another night. The little guy held up two fingers today. "Two days until Christmas", he said, and you should have seen the excitement in his eyes.
Whether you're a young buck who's heading home from university to see his folks and buddies, a single fellow or lass spending Christmas away from home, maybe with friends, maybe with a girl or a boy, your first of what may be many Christmases together or you've your own family now, youngsters or grown, I want to wish you the best of the season.
Have a Merry Christmas.
