The Real Gift of Christmas

What’s your favorite Christmas gift?

For me as a child, it might have been a doll’s tea set, a flute, or another of Walter Farley’s Black Stallion books (the Island Stallion was my favorite).

As an adult, hmm . . . My child’s artwork, a small hand pressed into plaster-of-paris and painted at school?  The Lladro piece that fit me perfectly, sent by my husband while he was out on his submarine?  Mostly, it’s just being with my family.Lladro EmbroidererWhatever it is for me, whatever it is for you, this is the real gift – and it’s fast become my all-time favorite short Christmas video.
