Smells of cedar and cinnamon,
lights, flickering about.
Christmas songs play through static of our old radio.
Boxes of many colors and patterns,
laid across the floor.
A miniature train chugs along a set pathway,
completely surrounding the tree.
Cackling fire, surrounded by red stockings,
filled to the brim with trinkets.
A light dusting of snow covers the ground,
while more falls from the heavens.
Children outside, riding in a sleigh,
this is Christmas day.
We hope everyone has had a blessed day, packed as full as possible with family, good food, quirky family traditions, and more Christmas cookies than strictly necessary…
