Christmas just brings back such fond memories of childhood. Even though in India, especially Delhi, Christmas is widely celebrated and everyone gets into the festive spirit, I miss and have most memories of my childhood Christmas in the US. Being brought up in Texas, I remember as a child how much I loved Christmas. Decorating the tree, making gingerbread houses at school, marshmallow wars, leaving cookies and milk for Santa, stuffed stockings, sipping hot chocolate by the fire place, making fake snow snowmen ( yes, Texas had it's disadvantages). One of my fondest memory is going for a drive after dinner with dad to check out whose house had the best Christmas decorations. It was so much fun. We would oooh and aaah at the marvelous sights.
I absolutely love this time of the year and can't wait to head out to the stores this weekend for some Christmas ogling! :D
