On the 4th Day of Christmas...

I visited Christmas Past today. Today Mom and I both began our Christmas Break from work, so we spent the day together revisiting old traditions. We headed to Northpark Mall to walk around and look at the decorations. Then we drove over to Kuby's in Snyder Plaza for lunch, and we picked up our family's 'traditional' sandwich meats, which we will have on Christmas Eve. It was packed everywhere we headed today with lots of Christmas shoppers going through the stages of their 'getting ready' process as well. There is comfort in the traditions, it reminds me I'm not as far away from those past Christmas memories as I sometimes feel like I am as each year passes quicker than the last! The 'memories' of Christmas Magic bring a little more excitement to this year through these familiar outings.
