Robert Fulghum: What I Want for Christmas

| Posted in Magical Christmas | | No Comments

   _____________________ "What I really, really, really want for Christmas is just this:  I want to be 5 years old again for an hour.  I want to laugh a lot and cry a lot.  I want to be picked up or rocked to sleep in someoneís arms, and carried up to bed just one more time. "I know what I really want for Christmas: "I want my childhood back. Nobody is going to give me that.  I might give at least the memory of it to myself if I try.  I know it doesnít make sense, but since when is Christmas about sense, anyway?  It is about a child, of long ago and far away, and it is about the child of now. In you and me.  Waiting behind the door of our hearts for something wonderful to happen.  A child who is impractical, unrealistic, simpleminded and terribly vulnerable to joy." -- Robert Fulghum
