Christmas time is near. Everyone is getting happy. Parents are shopping for present for their kids and family member. Kids are counting down the days and hours till it comes. Those who don’t celebrate Christmas maybe it is a time of year where you think about what you are grateful for. Those who do celebrate can’t wait to find out what is has been bought for them. Some go sneaking around the house trying to find their gifts. When I was younger I thought the days before Christmas were as long as can be. It felt like it would never come. Once it did come I was filled with delight. I was really happy with every present I got because it was a surprise. Now that I’m older I am not all that excited for it anymore. I know it is a time where I can get things I wouldn’t normally but I know what I’m getting now. I think Christmas is more fun when we are young. The spirit is still alive when we are older  but it isn’t that exciting. To me it feels that way.
