The time has come… after weeks of anticipation, much sneaking about, and many chocolates consumed, Christmas is finally here! I am doing my level best to sing as many carols and other holiday tunes as I can, to watch as many stop-motion classics as time and patience will allow for, and to basically embody as much Christmas spirit as these five feet, five inches can muster. I really do feel magic in the air. Maybe it’s all just the power of suggestion, or conjured in my head (where sugar plums… ok, scratch that… where chocolate truffles dance), but if it is, so be it. However I come to this most wonderful feeling of connectivity and generosity, of possibility and wonder, I’ll take it. And I’ll share it with you, in my go-to red Forever 21 party dress! (If you’ve ever invited me to a holiday party, then you’ve seen this one before.) Wherever this day finds you, may you too feel the spirit, and may you have a very Merry Christmas!
