Christmas Tree - Day 6

Well the tree is decorated and the lights are on and I think it looks beaudyful!! I find decorating my Christmas a very relaxing, spiritual, reflective time. I have felt like this all my life but more so now that I am older and about 90% of my pieces have some sort of history to them - like my little Christmas Elf that climbs his little ladder at the base of our tree each year - my little Hershey man on a sleigh that I got when we visited Hershey Park in Hershey, PA and my Bonnie & Clyde Gangster Car that I got from Warner Bros. Studios in California. Each piece I place on my tree has my mind wandering, reflecting on some time in my life - both happy and sad, smiling at some of the antics my kids did during their tiny years. Maybe that is why I love Christmas, it is filled with so many feelings and memories.
