I Remember Christmas

I remember waiting for Christmas and feeling like it took forever to get here.

I remember decorating the tree on the day after Thanksgiving.

I remember baking enough cookies to fill a dozen gift tins with my family.

I remember driving around town to look at the lights. 

I remember singing Christmas carols in the neighborhood and at nursing homes.

I remember shopping for the perfect gift.

I remember making gingerbread houses.

I remember eggnog, spiced cider and mulled wine.

I remember visits to (and from) Santa Claus.

I remember Christmas concerts, as a performer and as a listener.

I remember spending time with my extended family during the holidays.

I remember Christmas.
