              A pine coned tree with lots of presents draped with bright colored paper and bows underneath. Chestnuts roasting on that open fire. Mistletoe perched above the front door. Stockings hung on the mantle. A turkey baking in the oven and hot chocolate in mugs topped with loads of mar...shmallows on top. The baby Jesus in the manger with the wise men coming to see him in the usual spot on the mantle. Who doesn't love Christmas right? Okay, Scrooge. Besides Scrooge, most people have great memories of Christmas. The anticipation seems unbearable and the long list from the kids for Santa seems to get longer and more expensive every year. In the midst of it all, there is love. Love for family, friends and a heart that reaches out for those in need.
