I vowed to stay awake until midnight this morning in order to welcome the magical month of December. (and to kiss my darling quickly on the cheek as the clock struck midnight!) Call me sentimental, but as November turns over to December, something wonderful happens. As we prepare for the coming days and December 25th, celebrated in warmth and happiness, we must never loose sight of the beauty and the heart of Christmas.
