Christmas Eve

By Sarah Levesque (Rated G)

The smell of evergreen and fresh cookies overpowering the lingering scent of church incense;

The taste of mint and chocolate;

The feel of the soft blanket around me;

The sound of instruments softly playing Christmas carols in the background as Dad reads The Night Before Christmas;

The sight of family around the tree, round and evergreen to show God’s everlasting love, with a star at the top lighting the way to the Babe, and nothing underneath until tomorrow, for what else do we need right now?

This is love, joy, peace. This is what Christmas is to me.
