365 More Days

I hope that everyone had a great Christmas. Mine was very good, things were very similar to other years which is good, because I definitely have loved Christmas in the past and this was definitely no exception. They say that you get less excited about Christmas as you get older, but I am not so sure that is true. I do think that the focus changes and you aren’t as preoccupied with the presents and the surprises and more focused on family and friends. I also enjoying getting gifts for my younger brothers, which isn’t something that I did a lot before. Sure there were presents from me for them before, but often Mom and Dad were involved. Now things feel more real. Plus I like actually being able to sleep on Christmas eve instead of sitting up all night in my room wired out of my mind with anticipation.

I hope the remainer of the break (for most of you) is enjoyable and relaxing. Merry Christmas.
