Some Christmas Thises and ThatsOh, my dears, it's so close now, so very, very close.
There are a lot of
Me, I love Christmas. What, you didn't know? :)
I also love Christmas movies. Certain ones, that is.
Now, please enjoy this video in several parts, that I used to show each year to my 8th graders, each with a kindergarten student as a guest, laps full of cookies. The Christmas Messenger, starring Richard Chamberlain, the most beautiful man in the world.
Christmas Eve is such a magical time. It's all ahead of us, you see. To paraphrase Katie, age 8, in What Child Is This, by Caroline Cooney, the night before Christmas isn't called a 'night,' it's called 'eve,' and Christmas morning isn't called 'morning,' it's 'morn.' Eve and morn: two special words to highlight two special times.
How special are they? They are special already, in their own right, but how you make them special for yourself and for your children is entirely up to you. I hope you give them memories they will cherish all their lives, so much so that they will pass the glory along to their own children.
Children flourish with roots, but they soar with wings.
May your Eve be full of anticipation and warmth, and may your Morn be all you hoped it would be.
