I’ve always believed in the magic of Christmas Eve. In fact, I directed most of my childhood excitement and wonder for the holiday season toward the day before the big day. It’s the night that Santa Claus makes his flight around the world; the short time before angels appeared to shepherds and informed them that something miraculous had occurred; and the reminder to everyone to drop their normal work routine and pay respects to what is really important.
As the sky turns black, I love how people light up the night with candles set in paper bags, miniscule tapered lights wrapped around houses and warm embraces thrown out to everyone.
There’s been a big countdown going on all month long. As a kid, I would open paper doors on Advent calendars and remove construction paper rings from chains in preparation for Dec. 24. Today, I may not bounce off the walls with the same anticipation as a child but it’s fun to see my sister’s children continue this tradition.
