Okay, so all I ask is that beginning with Thanksgiving Day til the day after Christmas.....
Let me sing my Christmas songs. Let me buy my little gifts and wrap them and be happy doing it without any smug comments.
Let me owwww and ahhhh over the light displays without mentioning how much electricity the people are wasting and how our planet is being destroyed by these pointless things. They make me smile and that's good enough for me.
Let me look up in the sky and see a glowing red light on Christmas Eve and just let it GO- without comment- when I say "LOOK- there's Santa and Rudolf flying over!!".
Let me believe that reindeer can fly and elves make all the toys and Santa actually CAN deliver all those gifts in one night. Let me believe that the bite took out of the cookie and the empty glass of milk was the big guy in RED.
Don't burst my bubble. Let me be a kid again for just a while. It was all so much easier then and I could honestly say...
Because......maybe it's really what I DO believe - or maybe I just need to be able to believe again- just for a little while- to restore my sanity and hope.
