The Sunshine is Brightest After the Storm

Almost invariably, after snowfall, the sun seems to shine more brightly than ever before. The temperatures are beginning to hover a little above freezing, but the snow seems to be lasting and will hopefully fulfill our dearest wishes for a white Christmas. The family is all together again, tucked in by the snow for the holidays. Grandma and Grandpa have made our season richer with their presence and Grandma's baking is threatening to make us all plumper in 2008. My Christmas break is only three days away, and, oh, what excitement awaits that wonderful week between Christmas and New Year where the whole world is simply ours to delight in without regard for studies! What a season. Celebrating Christmas is such a fabulous way to end a year.
