Christmas is funny. It's such a big deal as a kid, and then you find out Santa's not real, and over time the magic fades out of it. Here we are, 4 days before Christmas, not quite feeling it. Was it even that great before? Sometimes you don't feel it until the day, if you spend it with someone. I miss the year feeling like it led up to Christmas, the anticipation of it. I wish we could preserve the magic, in some other way. One less bit of magic in the world.
