Waiting For The City’s Christmas Tree To Light Up
Last night, our city’s mayor with the help of Santa and a little girl with a generous heart and a powerful wish lit up the town’s official Christmas to symbolize the long-awaited Christmas season.
It was a beautiful night with clear skies showing a shimmering crescent moon and bright stars. The cinnamon scent from a nearby pastry shop smelled so sweet as the merry music of Christmas engulfed the jubilant air. Kids in their red and green sweater , some with Angry Bird woven hat playing happily as the parents watched them with delight.
A voice from the front stage announced that Santa is in the house to help turn on the lights. Santa made a grand entrance as he appeared from a building’s balcony to greet the excited crowd. He then disappeared. I thought for a moment that he was going to glide down a wire or jump with a parachute. He decided to use the stairs. Wise and sensible fella.
Santa walked on a red carpet as fans of all ages screamed excitedly for his name. He almost fell from the stairs as he went up the stage. Must be the blinding spotlight. After the mayor greeted the crowd, a girl dressed in red came up the stage. She made a beautiful letter to Santa through the city’s local magazine and got herself the ” World’s Largest Christmas Stocking. ” The look of surprise and joy can be seen on her innocent face. I heard my son say, “Oh, I wanted that for Christmas.” I just whispered, “May be Santa will grant your wish list too.” He smiled back looking content to my answer as we headed to the newly lighted Christmas Tree.
Waiting For Christmas And The Joy It Brings
It’s official, the Christmas season has begun for our vibrant city. People cheered and clapped their hands as they marvel at the beautifully decorated, brightly lit Christmas tree. Children were running around, laughing and playing around the tree. Some kids were having a great time trying to catch the artificial snow flakes. My son tried catching the snow flakes with one hand while his other hand was busy eating his last piece of peppermint candy cane.
Christmas symbolize everything that we hope for. It gives us an opportunity to both find and give happiness through generous gestures of kindness and gift giving. It’s a time to show our love and affection to those that matters to us. It’s a time to make a difference to someone, to remember, to be grateful and to celebrate life.
As the Christmas season unfolds in the days to come, may we find in our hearts the reasons and answers of what will genuinely make all of us happy and contended.
Overall, it was a wonderful night. A night filled with Happy thoughts and jubilant mood. Like the bright Christmas lights, may your Holiday season be filled with people and things that will have you heart glowing.
A happy and memorable Christmas season to all.
