What is it about Christmas?

I've wondered most of my life what it is about Christmas that I find so special? What about it makes me giddy like a child? I mean I can never sleep past 5am Christmas morning. I can be seen sitting on the couch watching anything with a Christmas theme to it. Last year it was The Shopping Channel which had Christmas jewellery for the hour. The year before I watched a choir singing carols. I love waiting for the rest of the family to wake up and see that the tree lights are already on and smell the aroma of brewing coffee. But what is it that makes this time of year so exciting, so special, even before I sit in the Christmas tree lit living room watching people selling jewellery at 5am? We're not allowed to say Merry Christmas at work and the main streets are hardly decorated yet my heart is filled with excitement and joy just the same. The little things that do it for me are the homes decorated with so many assorted colored lights that you can't see the house! The department stores that still dare to play overhead Christmas music. The wrapping paper/ribbon sections of stationery stores. The Christmas cartoons and movies... (The Grinch and Home Alone) being my favorites. When it first snows and the streets are lightly dusted with white. I can go on and on about what makes Christmas so special to me. My friends tell me I'm rediculously obsessed, that it's freakish to love something this much. I disagree, I think those of us who adore Christmas and let the season fill us with crazy amounts of joy are very special people. Kind people. Loving people. Can I say that I'd love to visit Santa's work, shop without sounding like I need a straight jacket? To devoted Christmas lovers, you're darn tootin' I can!! Who in their right mind doesn't believe in Santa anyhow?? Hmmm... I wonder what I'll be watching at 5am this Christmas morning??
