Christmas Evergreens hanging Toy trains circling Deep green trees reaching to the ceiling Crystal sparkling Lights twinkling Hemlock in the air Olde tyme melodies conjoined. God enfleshed A gift to the profane and the holy to the unbeliever and the believer Magic in winter ascending Toys and excitement for the kids Memories for mom and dad Hope and nostalgia ... Pain and love ... Loneliness in the midst of family ... Baby Jesus in the midst of you.
