Mom’s Christmas Magic!


I read somewhere a quote about how Christmas was made memorable because of a mom who made the Christmas “magic” happen. I really believe that moms are magical. I love the holidays so much. I love driving around and looking at the Christmas lights, I love taking silly holiday pictures, and I love baking cookies for Santa. Sometimes I feel like I’m the only one but then I see the smile on my daughter’s face. I really believe it’s all because of everything my mom put into making Christmas special for us. From picking out the perfect gifts, to decorating, and giving all the credit to Santa and his elves. Then there was baking cookies for Santa, singing Christmas songs, and of course learning about the reason for the season baby Jesus.

All of this was so special, especially when we were so young, and I know we did not have a lot of money then. Somehow it all seemed magical. Who knows how many times my mom went the extra mile just to put a smile on mine and my sister’s faces. I know it was not just my mom, but moms all over the world. Every family I’m sure has their own traditions– their own “magic” moments. Every mother out there making memories for their kids that will get passed down year after year.

Maybe you are like me, and your family tradition is going to the movies every Christmas. Or like my mom who gave me a teddy bear every year for Christmas until the year I had my daughter, then it was her turn. Maybe you go to Midnight Mass together, or you open presents right at midnight? No matter what your tradition is there is no doubt that mom had a hand in making it the most magical moment possible.
