Christmas ( mostly for the pretty lights and decorations ) and winter in general makes me very happy because you get to dress up all cozy and watch the rain or the snow ( in most places ) and sip on hot drinks and there's always a Christmas tree in our house for all of December...
"I heard a bird sing
In the dark of December
A magical thing
And sweet to remember.
'We are nearer to Spring
Than we were in September,'
I heard a bird sing
In the dark of December."
- Oliver Herford, I Heard a Bird Sing
The daylight hours continue to dwindle. One arrives at work just as the sun is beginning to rise, and leaves as the last pink etching on dusk’s clouds are fading. Most days are muted with deep battleship grays shrouding the pale orb that seems...
and my only excitement for school starting is the cool weather ahead. I love wearing scarfs and other winter related clothes so it's good that I can finally wear it without dying in the heat. And there is Christmas break so that helps. I love Christmas btw!
