  • Some of my favorite holiday memories were driving around with my parents, looking at homes decorated for the occasion. We’d wake up really early on Christmas Day to open gifts. Now as a parent, seeing Christmas through my daughter’s eyes, I see it as a priceless gift.  

    The joy that Christmas lights bring her, the happiness she shows in singing “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch,” and the anticipation in her eyes as she digs through wrapped presents show me the true meaning of the holiday.
