Keep Christmas with you all through the year;Okay, so that one's the Muppets, but you get my drift.
When Christmas is over, save some Christmas cheer.
These precious moments, hold them very dear
And keep Christmas with you
All through the year.
What is it about Christmas that seems to make people want to hold onto it, but they never do... so the next year there is melancholy about the Christmas they left behind and a new resolve to "hold on" to it this time?
Is it time with family?
Is it the "spirit of giving?"
Is it the chance to see Pac-Man save Santa just one more time?
Is it that we just love "Up On The Housetop" so much?
Is it Jesus?
(If it's Jesus, how come people who don't believe in Jesus often feel the same way?)
