Yes, about Christmas. What else?
All our senses are attuned to It
The Sights: glitter of lights reflect

filled with expectancy, and always
brightly shining the symbol of
Christmas the Star. The Sounds:
the good wishes, the ' thank you's,
gleeful shouts of happiness and sat
isfaction, and the music of the ca
rols one never tires of hearing.
The Smells: of Christmas cooking,
candy and fruit cake. The Tastes:
eggnog and another turkey, dinner
like the-one a month ago. The Feel:
reunion with loved ones wtth warm
hugs and handclasps, the spirit of
Christmas in your bones.
