Christmas. Yes, I realize how long the season has become and how commercialized. And I understand how much misery and heartache and sadness some people feel during the Christmas holidays; but, for me, it is an escape into a pleasant time, if more in my mind than in reality. I love to think about family gatherings, and banquets, and children with presents, and songs and colors, etc. Well, it is not reality, in truth, but it is one of my realities, nonetheless.
