Christmas for sure….. love the family aspect, the giving, the air of love that permeates everything and (almost) everyone…. the colors, sounds and music of Christmas in the stores and malls (great time to shop for girlie things)…the lights ( I am the neighborhood Griswold) ….. a white Christmas every so often…..I love Hallmark’s Christmas in July series….. A Charlie Brown Christmas…..A Christmas Story (the 1983 Peter Billingsley movie… I still laugh out loud after watching it dozens of times. There were many memorable characters in the movie, but I always admired Melinda Dillon who played Peter’s mom… I thought she was pretty)…. other, more heartwarming Christmas movies which always make me cry…….. doesn’t get any better for me…..
I always get melancholy when the Christmas lights come down.
