Christmas ~ez_euro~~ez_ldquo~ that magic blanket that wraps itself about us, that something so intangible that it is like a fragrance. It may weave a spell of nostalgia. Christmas may be a day of feasting, or of prayer, but always it will be a day of remembrance ~ez_euro~~ez_ldquo~ a day in which we think of everything we have ever loved.
