Description: I love Christmas so much. The cookies, the gifts, the love. It is all so wonderful. When I was younger however, there was one Christmas that I will remember as the “Christmas of LIES”. It was the worst Christmas ever. It was the Christmas of 2003. My parents had been fighting the entire month and I just wanted Christmas to come quickly. I asked my dad everyday when we could put the lights up and he would always put it towards another day. I loved hanging lights, because the lights brought joy and wonder to the house. (Also we had better lights than my arch nemesis, Kevin, across the street and I would always make sure he knew!) It was finally Christmas Eve and everyone had their lights u except for us! I was so upset. All I wanted was Christmas joy. That apparently was too much for me however. This picture reminds me of what my house should have looked like back then. It should have been of web of light that could be seen from outer-space, yet gentle enough to be close to. All the colors are working in harmony to compliment each other and bring out the best that each color has to offer. The green is especially my favorite, because it brings the most Christmas joy, true scientific fact. I love how you can even see the detail of rain on the brick walkway. It is illuminating from the wondrous Christmas lights. It is perfect. This is what my Christmas should have been. Since it never happened, this is truly unreal. How depressing, I know.
