[Error: unknown template qotd] Well, Honestly, I guess I'm always trying to recapture that Christmas 'Magic' I felt when I was younger. It's probably been about 12 years since I experienced that. My Mom died in 1999 on November 3rd-- which sort of changed the holiday seasons since. But the two years before that, she was very sick with the cancer and the treatments-- and I think I sort of 'shut' myself off to the whole thing. Now, I'm starting to try and make up for loss time-- but there's just no holiday 'spark'. I always think of the Christmas' of my early years. I think of my Dad, my Mom, my brother, and my sister-- and the times we were all together.
