I miss everything about the Season, but I especially miss being around family. I do not see myself ever returning to live in Sault Ste. Marie, but I always enjoy being surrounded by my family.

Somewhat uncommon in eastern NC in late Feb. but it snowed here this morning. Just for an hour and it didn't stick but it was right when I was walking out the door to take my girl to kindergarden. She went nuts and ran around trying to catch them on her tounge. We sang winter wonderland and jingle bells in the car on the way to school. For a few moments, Christmas came back.

I miss all the things that the previous posters mentioned, particularly the "feeling" of Christmas, that excitement STILL keeps me awake on Christmas Eve. To me, there is just a specialness about the very air at Christmastime.

I miss everything all the other posters mentioned, particularly the magical feeling of the whole Christmas season. Even at this age, there is still enough excitement about Christmas that I cannot sleep on Christmas Eve.

Having one of those moments again today where I long for the Christmas Season, I went to the grocery store yesterday and they still had the cinnamon scented pine cones on clearance for $.99 a bag. To me they bring in the season because where I work they are always the first Christmas item to come in and the smell brings in that feeling.

I miss people being nice and cheerful. It's amazing how that gets turned on and then off like a light.

I have been missing the Christmas season quite a bit in the recent days, I have been checking for Christmas shows on the channel search, and listening to Christmas music every now and then, but it isn't quenching my holiday cheer. I think it is because as a kid Easter was my most anticipated holiday next to Christmas, with the "visitor" in the middle of the night leaving a gift just for you.
Unfortunately Easter isn't made up to be a big deal anymore .(IMO) I remember everything used to be closed on Easter, now you can go to the mall, go grocery shopping, etc... Guess I am just venting

I miss my family, I stayed with my folks for 2 weeks. It was a joy waking up to them & having random pillow fights with my dad & my mom trying to break them up (best christmas memory)! I miss my dad calling me & saying "Hey Charlie Brown or Frosty is on" I just miss the happiness it gives. Its a shame that commercials, radio, TV, & companies build so much anticipation for it & on December 26 its gone like a vapor. But I know this much, if it weren't for technology (DVR's & the internet) we'd all have the Christmas Blues until November lol!
