Deck the halls..

... with bounds of holly, FA LA LA LA LA, LA LA LA LA~ ~

Tis the season to be jolly, FA LA LA LA LA, LA LA LA LA~

Sigh, Christmas was just over. Don't you just love it?

What do we love about Christmas;
Does our delight reside in things?
Or are the feelings in our hearts
The real gift that Christmas brings.
Joanna Fuchs

Take a look at the Christmas tree over here. Does it not emanate comfort, warmth, and happiness? Lightly decorated with red and gold baubles and some ribbon, lightly wrapped around to make the tree look like a Christmas present in itself. Under it, presents are cramped, randomly arranged. Gold, red, white: magical colours for the eyes to feast at the beginning of Christmastide.

The whole concept of a Christmas tree is so captivating, enchanting, and definitely not overrated and hyped. A Christmas tree is so beautiful, that when you see one, admiration takes over your whole body, the warm fuzzy feeling just creeping up your spine taking base in your shoulders, where comfort generally rests. So resplendent, the sight of a little tree in the living room housing presents which kids are so eager to open in the morning, over a cup of eggnog or what not. No one can escape the captivating glow of the lights, falling on the baubles, tinsel, and stars. They shine with dazzling perfection under the lights so much so that they look like vivid gold nuggets and rubies. A Christmas tree is simply perfect, impeccable, no matter what it is decorated with.

Christmas Eve is an incentive, building up the excitement for Christmas day itself. Inducing a belief that has lasted two millennia, Christmas Eve is even celebrated albeit on a smaller scale, probably on a personal or filial one. It is more of a countdown, where people wait for the clock to strike twelve, while prepping for the next day, the big day. On Christmas eve, I was so full of the Christmas spirit, I felt like dancing, extending my happiness and joy to others who did not feel the same way. However, I think nearly everyone was filled with the same joy; UTAR was filled with seas of Santa Claus' caps on peoples heads.

Christmas is awesome, I feel so happy on Christmas (though I have no reason to celebrate it). But do I really need a reason? Do WE really need a reason? If you ask me, Christmas is a time for expression of love for others, bliss, elation, joyfullness, and definitely a time for giving to others. But receiving is an added bonus as well XD. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Peace on Earth will come to stay, when we live Christmas everyday.
