#893 The twinkle, the ambiance, the warmth.. That's why I love Christmas..


I love Christmas lights. The twinkle, the ambiance, the warmth. For some reason these little glowing lamps make me smile from ear to ear. 

People seem to spend hundreds of dollars and snake them around the skinny trunks of palm trees, and even attach them to their tiny apartment balconies. They change normally-white outdoor bulbs to ones of red and green.  I must admit I prefer the soft white lights – seems to me more of a White Christmas that I can’t have been summer in December. I’m sure I love this because it reminds me of my childhood but I also love it because there is no practical reason for it. It’s not rational. In fact, it’s completely irrational. 

It’s a total pain to hang lights around a house. It costs us more money in extra electricity. It’s a huge inconvenience when it becomes time to take it all down again and wait another year. Yet we seem to do it each year over and over again. 

I’m sure this strange tradition means many things to many people. But for me, it’s a gentle reminder of time for family and also been irrational in the hanging of the lights and dragging out once again the enormous Christmas tree..
