Today we remember how it all began. We remember what He’s done for us. We remember the sacrifice He made so that we may be saved. We remember that on the third day, He resurrected.
Amidst all the chocolates (which I had none of, by the way) fluffy bunnies and hot cross buns, we remember Him. We remember His love.

Are we too grownup to feel a thrill
As we light the Christmas tree?
Are we immune to cookies,
Christmas cards and Christmas glee?
Are we too adult to “Ooh” and “Aah”
At the Christmas candle’s glow?
Are we blasé about our gifts;
Do we shun the mistletoe?
Are we too mature for carols,
For merry or for jolly?
Do the decorations leave us cold,
The ornaments and holly?
Fat chance! We’ll never grow too old
To love the Christmas magic.
A year without a Christmas
Would be boring, even tragic.
So bring it on! The candy canes,
The feasting and good cheer;
O Christmas, lovely Christmas,
You’re the highlight of the year!

Have a blessed Christmas, folks.
To my dear cousin, Bea, on her birthday,
May we always be “the devil’s spawns” Tee hee hee :p
Happy birthday, babes!
