I think I miss the tree the most though, I could just stare at it and recall many great Christmases past.



I know exactly how you feel. My tree is coming down this weekend and I am NOT looking forward to it. Sitting and looking at the tree with no other lights on is one of my very favorite things to do. It just seems so peaceful, so beautiful and tranquil. I too think back to the times when I was a child with my parents and siblings. Somehow in doing so I seem to turn into that little child full of wonder again. There is just something so special about Christmas trees.

Well, you're all welcome at my house, because it is still very much Christmas here. All decorations are still up! I was going to take everything down last weekend, but other things came up that needed my attention. I plan to tackle this project this weekend.

I'll miss the decorations, but right now, I miss the commercials and tv specials. Television was really nice this holiday season. I don't have satelite or cable, but "regular television" had several holiday specials to watch.

Someone mentioned missing the Folgers commercial. I didn't see that commercial this year, but my all-time favorite Folgers commercial was made in the 80s and is sometimes pulled from the vault to re-air. It's the one where a car pulls up in front of a house, a young man enters and notices all occupants are still asleep. He goes to the kitchen to brew a pot of coffee, which wakes up his mother. While the coffee is brewing, the man is placing several packages under the tree. When the mother comes quietly downstairs to see who is in her house, the young man (her son) walks out of the kitchen with a serving tray containing the coffee pot and several cups. The mother is so surprised to see her son has come home for the holidays. This commercial brings a smile to my face everytime I see it. Folgers re-aired this commercial in 2004 or 2005. I was surprised to see it!

I, recently, bought a book called "It's A Wonderful Christmas: The Best of the Holidays 1940-1965" by Susan Waggoner. It talks about how a number of today's Christmas traditions were started during and after World War 2. There are numerous pictures of toys, ornaments, sales ads, posters, decorations, etc. that were popular during this time frame. This is a must have for all Christmas lovers. I have really enjoyed reading it. When I get the Christmas blues, I'll pull this book out.

Mostly I miss all the Christmas episodes and movies on all throughout the season each evening and even sometimes during the day on Hallmark. I also miss the Christmas music on the radio station when I drive somewhere.

I miss the Christmas movies that were on non stop Yea! on lifetime, hallmark and family... I watched them over and over.... I think it is because it was Christmas and the sounds of it even when I went I did stuff around the house was heartwarming.

I miss my taste buds...! I'm finishing up the last drop of eggnog in our house and because of a nasty cold I can't taste it at its peak of deliciousness... (!!!) =)

Well, yeh... technically... but walking past all the different cars, reading clever, funny and, sometimes, infuriating bumper stickers (like people who still have Kerry 2004 stickers on their cars) and checking for out of state license plates is fun... walking across an EMPTY parking lot is just sad and sorta pathetic... reminds me of the Grizzwolds parking at Wally World...

I miss the whole feel of the season after the rest of the world goes back into "everyday mode." That lack turns winter days from "Winter Wonderland" and "Marshmallow World" into cold, gray drabness. Happily, looking forward to some upcoming plans and events has driven away most of the post-Christmas blues.

Thank you, Wenceslaus! I was wondering if that commercial was on YouTube.

Thank you for posting it.
