It’s not just about the Jingle Bells

As I sit in my car listening to a Very Maverick Christmas album I am reminded of what Christmas really is about.

Do you remember what it’s like to dream? Do you remember sitting and staring off into the distance and just letting your imagination run wild? Yeah… me neither! 😦 We really need to find that again!
