I love this time of year because of the christmas "spirit" I feel within, and from those around me. I realize a lot of people feel it is the spirit of their God, and I respect that. But for me, it is different than that.
I think it's more the feeling that we all realize we are brothers and sisters deserving of common courtesy and respect, simply because of our shared humanity. I love that christmas brings this out in people.
Do you feel that this time of year brings it out more in you or others? Or do you find people are worse this time of year?

To me the "Christmas Spirit" is the essence of love, peace, and unity. To me this time of the year means I can celebrate family, history, and spirituality all at once! My brother's b-day is on Christmas, my moms b-day is in Dec., the winter solstice, Kwanzaa, and snow is what compels me to love this time of the year. Not to mention the good ole southern hospitality that everyone displays publicly. I love the lights, the songs, and the spuspense of gift giving and getting! But more than anything I LOVE EGGNOG, so I get to OD every Christmas (and Thanksgiving Day).
