santahat Merry Christmas and Happy New Years!

My name is Westcricket and I am from ca. but currently living in Ga. I have been a devoted lover of all things Christmas for as long as I can remember. This may seem strange since i am a 54 year old man. I hardly know any men who really seem to enjoy the holidays and often feel isolated when I express how much I enjoy Christmas. Christmas 2011 seemed to be very special this year. My marriage had been going through a dry spell. My teen age daughter was distant and the family just seemed very blah about everything. Yet, for some reason Christmas just seemed to bring everyone together this year. I can say that when your wife of 28 years says to you that this was the best Christmas ever, well it makes you feel great. Ditto for the teen age daughter who was willing to spend more time with me this year than she ever has. Just a great time this year. It has given me renewed energy to pay attention to the things that are really important. I know this seems so cliche but it's hard for me to ignore this time of the year and the joy and happiness it has brought everyone. I sometimes wonder if the big guy upstairs did not send me this neat little present called Christmas 2011.
