The season has begun!
This past weekend I had a Christmas movie marathon with my mother. I have always enjoyed the more "realistic" Christmas tales or the over-the-top fantasies.
I guess dysfunctional family stories are much more easy for me to identify with, because really who has a Christmas that really is postcard perfect?
Families fight, meals get ruined and nothing is ever perfect.
Christmas is a time to celebrate a miracle baby's birth and the way I see it Mary and Joseph spent the first Christmas in a barn and there is nothing particularly glamorous and glitzy about that.
But the love remains and the traditions continue, that's Christmas for me!
