(I know this is a few hours late, but I wanted to get in on the fun) I close my eyes and take in the sweet scent of the scotch pine in the living room, the aroma of sugar cookies baking, a candle burning in the next room, and for a brief moment I’m four years old again, anxiously awaiting Santa.


Jesus is the reason for the season. Wise men still seek Him.

One great week with my sisters and family. One great week with a great friend who happens to be a writer also; that’s what the holiday means to me.


After the Christmas story had been retold , Artie picked up his red stocking embroidered with a toy soldier on the velvet band, and hung it in place on the mantle. He climbed the stairs to his room, dimly-lit by a Santa Claus night-light, and in bed, listened to pine trees creaking in the wind and the rustling of oak branches on the roof, wondering were those reindeer hoofs pawing on the rooftop?

Chaotic beauty strung together with popcorn, family, friends and memories. Bright lights, warm drinks and line-ups that never end.

Holiday seasons have always been calming for me. Well at least since I began an adult; now i can go home and relax and forget about my part of the rat race. I sit back and enyoy old school fun.


You really have a way with words, Anisa! Chaotic beauty, an oxymoron in my way of thinking, but here perfectly brings to mind a big family Christmas with everyone talking all at once, snapping photos, and giggling out of control just from the sheer joy of it all!
