(Happy) Ghosts of Christmas Past
We’ve been trying to get in the holiday spirit here. First we decorated and then we watched “3 Godfathers” (a great, but sadly underrated movie). Don’t get me wrong, those things helped. But something was still missing. I realized this morning that what I really miss is the sound of excited children. Not having any happy children immediately to hand, I went to my photo albums. I must say that these pictures have given me a great boost in holiday spirit.
Remember when snow meant adventure — sometimes including dinosaurs?
Remember when visiting Santa was super exciting and not that creepy?
Remember when an indoor tent, sleeping bag and action figures were the best thing in the world?
And let’s not forget Lego…
or the happy, happy baby brother!
There. Now I feel the excitement of Christmas, don’t you?
While presents are nice, let’s not forget that we’re really celebrating a very different type of gift.
