Merry Holidays you Kwanza jews

I tried to make that headline as PC as I possibly could, I think I failed miserably. Aaaaaanywho do you guys remember that time right after christmas when you didn't have to clean up, you didn't have to wear fancy clothes or get kissed by grandma for hours? You woke up in the early hours got out of bed as quickly as you could, and since most of you readers are gamers, you would go t the tv, plug in that new console, pop in that new gamecd and then play for a round or two and be full of excitement and childish glee. The years went by but you would still love that very cherrished alone time right before your parent awoke, just you and your presents that were more neatly wraped in the game than your parents could ever have imagined, the music, the colours, all of the fun and thrill of just running to the right and jumping could not be beat by anything in the world because right now and right there it was the only thing you wanted to spend your time with, only you and the game. One fateful christmas though you just had a sensory overload, you grew up and got clothes for christmas, got books and the games had become more lenghthy and complex, you wouldn't just pop them in anymore but you would install and read the instructions, you wouldn't just get into a game you would be sucked into a different world and it would take days, nay, weeks to even grasp the full extent of your presents which in and of itself was a blessing but sometimes I look back and I think about just waking up and playing with my presents for the first time, being able to test them all before my parents had even awoken and I miss these days.
They have had a resurgance for me though, I get multiplayer games ever so often now and after christmas when all the work was done, all the presents given we would just crash down on a couch and play together and I feel that fun and thrill again that I had playing with that giant power rangers robot or that new sonic game again.

-Have a very jolly christmas, even when you don't celebrate it, cherish the thick scent of love, cinnamon and cookies in the air because they are best inside all of us humans, D.
