My screen name is M.W., which is simply name initials. I am a teacher in Michigan.
I joined this board because it's great to read about how other people spend / feel/ remember Christmas. For a while (let's say from 18 until 30), I really thought I lost my connection to Christmas; and that hurt, because I was madly in love with Christmas and the whole holiday season as a child, and for most of my teen years.
And, at the risk of sounding like a bad rip-off of "It's a Wonderful Life" or "A Christmas Carol", now in my early-forties I feel I've not only regained my original love and attraction for Christmas, but have done so in an even deeper and more profound way. In short, my days wandering through Christmas Purgatory are over
Maybe I should have picked the screen name Ebeneezer (the Ebeneezer of Christmas morning, of course)
