FEELINGS! Different parts of Christmas invoke different feelings.

Being with dear family and friends invoke a strong sense of Love and Joy for Blessings in my life.

Wrapped gifts under the tree bring back those feelings of being giddy with anticipation of the Surprises that Christmas brings.

Baking Christmas Cookies with my kids bring the feelings of happiness. Watching my kids enjoying them cutting out and decorating their own cookies and that Special one that will adorn Santa's plate on Christmas Eve.

Those special Christmas shows like Rudolph and Charlie Brown brings forth the feeling that Christmas is Magical. If not for that Magic then how could Santa know if you were naughty or nice or be able to deliver all those gifts in one night?

Christmas music, certain christmas secented candles and of course Christmas snow all bring the feeling of Peace.

For me it's because Christmas is the one time of the year when it seems the spirit of the whole world strives to be what it was meant to be all along. Kind, thoughtful, generous, charitable, forgiving, joyous and, most of all, loving.

Hmm this is a tough one for me to answer too (I love the replies!) I'd say everything. But if that isn't allowed then it has to be that magical feeling Christmas gives you. The anticipation and run up to Christmas, the excitement, preparation, watching the films, listening to the music then FINALLY after preparing for a long time Christmas eve comes and I'm able to relax with family and friends and just enjoy the feeling. It just all feels amazing and magical and I hope that feeling never goes.
