30 Days of Holiday Cards - Day 11: Christmas Magic

Today I am featuring my "Christmas Magic Is Everywhere" Card.  I took the photograph that appears on this card through a store window while out Christmas shopping several years ago.   I love the way the reflection makes it seem that the Santa figure is barely there, like he is appearing suddenly out of nowhere, as if by magic.

The holidays can truly be a magical time.  Sometimes, however, I get a little blinded by the glitz and glamour of it.  The lights, decorations and shiny packages greatly appeal to my inner child, who is a 14 year old girl obsessed with glitter and all things lime green.  I sometimes have to reign myself in, step away from the wrapping paper that coordinates with the ribbon that compliments the tree skirt that would provide a nice contrast to the carefully planned but seemingly casually placed ornaments on my Christmas tree, and remind myself what the magic of the season is really all about.

It may take a little while for the fog of decorating madness to lift but eventually I remember that the true magic of the Holidays lies in it's spirit of warmth and generosity and the time spent with friends and family.  That and, of course, pie.  :)
