Can you feel it?

Remember that EXCITED feeling you had as a kid when it was almost Christmas?

Butterflies in your stomach...the slight fear that just maybe Santa might put coal in your stocking because you were naughty...pouring through the Sears catalog making insane lists of all the toys you wanted...seeing how pretty the house started to look as a tree marched into the living room and the fire place mantle was decorated with beautiful smelling evergreens and just like the story says...our stocking were hung by the chimney with care...trying to imagine just what was inside that wrapped present under the tree with your name on it...the smell of the special bayberry candles that my mother bought just for Christmas time...watching Rudolf the Red nosed reindeer and Frosty the Snowman on TV...hearing the wonderful Christmas songs...can you feel it?
