Over the last couple of years, I have gained yet another level of nostalgia around the holidays. Today, I started thinking about where my nostalgia for the holidays comes from. Why do I feel this way? Is it the food? Is the the presents? Candy canes? It could be about the fact I am getting older and beginning to realize it. Perhaps it is something else entirely. The end of the decade has come and we're about to venture into 2011 - so, that may be it. I am not sold on any particular holiday experience being the catalyst. I don't think I ever will truly know as I stopped wondering how my brain worked many, many years ago. I just let it go crazy and do whatever it wants. You should try it some time. You might scare yourself into being happier or something, something, something.
