This is the one time of year when I become a kid again – in thought and excitement and anticipation. For me, this is the time of year when magic exists – the twinkling of Christmas lights, the glow of a home filled with family, the possibilities of a new year.

For as cynical as I can be all the other days of the year, these are the moments when I stop and give my heart a moment to just believe.
