I'll be the first to admit that the older I get, the less interested I am in the trappings of the holiday season. I don't really care about shopping and it doesn't matter to me if we get lights hung up or not. On the other hand, there are some things I really do love - I'm a sucker for the Charlie Brown Christmas Special each year, for the look on my kids' faces when they open a gift, and for the idea that I can bake as much as I like and no one will complain about the mysterious arrival of warm loaves of bread on their desks.
I like snow - although I'll be sick of it by March - and I like the fact that it's a good time of year to stay indoors, decompress, and not sweat the small stuff. I also like knowing that by Yule, it's the end of the longer nights, and that slowly the sun begins working its way back. So, in no particular order, here are Ten Things I Love About the Winter Solstice
