For me, it's almost always been a little bittersweet. I have very fond memories of christmas as a kid and into my teenage years. My parents really tried hard to give us everything we wanted on christmas. After my mum died, a lot of the magic left. Now i'm over on the other side of the world, working to create my own family traditions. I miss my family in the USA, I miss my mum. I'll try to write a happier post tomorrow. Happy christmas eve.
