They haven’t changed a bit

Unboxing the Christmas decorations is like going to a reunion with old friends. You pick up where you left off.

It’s me who has changed. With each passing year, the trinkets, the ornaments, the sparkly and the shiny things I ask to see in December seem more dear to me.

Little ones hang the ornaments on unreasonable branches. They bend fragile wire boughs the wrong way. Jingle bells lose their jingle and maybe even their jangle, all because they are loved.

They are exclaimed over.

“I remember this! I love this!”

And then I put it on the table or drape it on something high and hope the Toddler du Yuletide doesn’t destroy it.

Usually, everything survives a month on display and eleven months in basement boxes.

So, Hello. You don’t know how nice it is to see you again.
