The Start Of The Magic

It's coming, I feel it. Right now it is a kind of subtle giddiness inside me, a vague sense of excitement, an inside kind of glow. The Christmas season is just around the corner and I feel it !!! Do you feel it as well ??? I was in Rite Aid yesterday and they have Fall things out, which to me is a direct connection to Christmas !!! I am starting to hear songs in my head........."...angels we have heard on high..." Or .........."Chestnuts roasting on an open fire......" As this excitement continues to grow I always tend to grow more hopeful for the world. I am a little idealistic but each year as Christmas approaches I always have the hope that maybe people will finally realize we are all part of the same family, the human family and that some of the silly divisions between us will abate because of that realization and that everyone perhaps will be touched by the magic that is Christmas. The lights, the tree, the decorations, the carols, the time spent quietly appreciating...

Furchildren, Polar Bears And Christmas In July

Posted 07-24-2010 at 10:19 AM by caninemom3

Today is Christmas in July and a very Merry CHRISTmas to everyone !! As I sit here typing and thinking and reflecting I am also listening to Christmas music. Not just any Christmas music, although all of it is special to me. This is Nat King Cole Christmas music. I love this man. When The Christmas Song comes on wherever I am, I can't help it but I get tears in my eyes. He is the epitome of childhood Christmas memories to me not to mention one of the most expressive, smooth and talented singers and jazz pianists I have ever heard. The Christmas Song by Nat instantaneously brings all my childhood memories flooding back. And they are all good ones. I can see myself at the age of 9 or 10 and my parents, my brothers and my sister all around the tree on Christmas morning and there is a definite magic in the air, though most of the magic occured then and now on Christmas Eve. I see us laughing, talking exchanging gifts and hugs and I am of course the apple of everyones' eyes because I am the...

Christmas Magic And MMC

Posted 07-13-2010 at 09:04 PM by caninemom3

A weird thing always happens to me even before Christmas is even over. A few days before Christmas Eve I begin to be sad because I know that it will all soon be over for another year. It seems to get worse every year with every birthday. Last year, however, something changed. I was depressed as usual but in late December when the Christmas blues were kicing in full scale I found this site. It made me feel like Christmas was here, waiting for me. It felt magical, like going to a 24/7 celebration of Jesus' birth with all the good feelings associated with that as well as all the excitement. I began to read some of the posts and I noticed right away how respectful everyone was toward each other. I was amazed. I have been to other Christmas sites and even am a member of a couple others but this one is so special. I truly believe this website has Christmas magic and part of that magic is due to the way Mr. Westover oversees everything. I call him Mr. Westover because as I am speaking about his...
