The Christmas Thermometer

When the Christmas holiday begins it is like there is a Christmas-magic thermometer with a red mercury line that rises with warmth, anticipation, fun, giving and thoughts of baby Jesus… as the holiday presses closer to the 25th.

But then,

in an instant

on the 26th…

the mercury begins to drop

and that red line of magic slowly starts to drop down

and down

and down.

The New Year celebration holds tight to one last burst of joy,

and then life

clicks back to “normal” in  a snap.

We go our way

for eleven months,


the magic thermometer


and then

begins to rise once again…
