There's something about Christmas that is bittersweet. While it's an absolute joy to celebrate with my family and loved ones, I find an inherent sadness, perhaps tears of joy would best describe this feeling, during this season. The act of giving, the warmth of the setting, the food being shared-- it's all very wonderful. However, I really wish we could all stop and do this more often instead of reserving so much for just a few special days out of the year. Perhaps this will be a New Year's resolution of mine.
