Very cute story!
My kids are all adults now, but each of them love Christmas more with each passing year and when I lost my mom in late November of 2010, I received an email from my then 24 year old son saying that he was listening to Christmas music and his thoughts were that he hoped that I wouldn't let my grief steal my love of Christmas. It really touched my heart and I will always remember it.
“Our hearts grow tender with childhood memories and love of kindred, and we are better throughout the year for having, in spirit, become a child again at Christmas-time.”
― Laura Ingalls Wilder
