Trying not to make Christmas about presents and yet still stressing over getting something nice for the ones you love. A brief moment, the after glow when your present is revealed to them. Giving gifts and thanks to each other is a beautiful part of the big day. What comes next is more important. The day spent with each other. It is a special day and worldly concerns are left at the front door. If you are lucky, the warm rooms you are in are filled with love and laughter. There are sweet things to eat and feeling stuffed comes with the Christmas theme. Nothing more than you, your smile is needed.
