My Warm Cozy Home

My Warm Cozy Home
The smell of the gingerbread cookies woke me up. As I opened my eyes I squinted and rubbed the sleep from my face. I jumped out of my bed to go turn on the Christmas lights, excited because Christmas is my favourite time of year. My home is full of Santas and a big Christmas tree with shining things on it. I prayed that every buddy had a comfortable home for this and that they were spending it with someone. This time of year is making memories and sitting by the woodstove watching “Home Alone” drinking hot cocoa with my family in my restful home all cuddled up in blankets.
When I ran into the living room I could see lots of boxes with colourful paper and bows on top, they were all different sizes. I darted straight to the Christmas tree and turned on the lights. We waited until my grandma and grandpa arrived and I could hear their voices travel down the hall. As we were talking, I squealed with joy because we can now start to open presents. My sister, and two brothers and I opened the gifts so fast, the paper was flying everywhere and laughter was ringing in the air. There were also a lot of thank yous. After, we had to clean up the paper from our crazy explosion of gifts, but our smiles were cemented on.
My mom and grandma started to make something that smelled really good. They will always make something that is only for Christmas. The breakfast that we had, It had a Christmas feeling to my gut. It reminded me of my warm house. We sat around the fire and played some games after, I looked outside I saw these fluffy sparkles they were all different sizes. My grandma and grandpa hugged us as they left and even after the warm embrace my soul was warm, happy and full. The reason I like Christmas is not because of the presidents it’s because of making the memories and laughing and having fun. I think that it’s important to have this Holiday. When we get into December, I find there is no safer place to be than at home. It is a very comfortable and special place to be when it’s Christmas time. The nice thing is that in the end, we are all happy, just as long as we are all together in a place we can call home. My soul is so peaceful and warm inside and everyone deserves to feel this way.
