Okay, here it is. I love Christmas. I always have, when I was little I would start watching our VHS tapes of Christmas specials as early as I could. I have the songs memorized, I have the commercials memorized, remember the 7-up elves? With the advent calendar that you glued cotton balls onto Santa's beard? Does "Peter you're home!" make you feel all gushy? Well for me these are part of my childhood, and plus it's a day you get presents! Who does't love presents? My family was never one for spending a lot, but there was plenty of thought put into gifts. So I have already started thinking about what to make/give to my family for that special time of year. To commemorate the beginning of the season for me I made a snowflake.
