Christmas Blessings

I love Christmas time.
Tonight I drove my kids around town to look at Christmas lights. Eldest was thrilled with all the pretty houses (CurlyGirl slept the entire time, thankfully). He even called one house a beautiful castle.
We listened to Christmas songs and even sang a few while we drove along. The evening was foggy and the lights seemed to glow with a special radiance.
It was a simple way to spend an evening, but it was joyous. I love Christmas time because the neighborhoods dress in their best, the songs on the radio are all cheery, the smell of cooking and baking fills houses. But most of all, I love Christmas time because it seems as if the entire world is celebrating my Savior's birth. It is a special time, indeed.
