Earlier this month, I saw Rise of the Guardians in theaters. While not a Christmas movie, it does have Santa Claus in a major supporting role. In one of my favorite scenes, Santa explains that at his core, his purpose is to bring wonder into the world: Seeing the world with new eyes; giving a fresh look to the possibilities and magic contained in everything around us. This, I think, is what I have been feeling since Thanksgiving: a renewed sense of wonder. I still do not understand why, but frankly, I don't think it really matters.
Merry Christmas everyone. Have a wonderful holiday, in every sense of the word.
Lots of Love,
P.S. If you haven't yet, I really encourage you to see Rise of the Guardians before it leaves theaters. Here, have a trailer:
