Not wanting this evening to end, I decided I would extend the invitation ... "Wanna walk around after and see the Holiday decorations?" I asked in hopeful anticipation that he would say yes. With whipped cream on his lip, he agreed that my suggestion was positively the most awesome idea he had ever heard and I was sheer genius for thinking of it. My my .... touche MyDear... you are most definitely on your flirtatious game as well sir. Well played... well played.
Full of chocolate and spirits, we strolled out onto the streets of the Old Port, and walked hand-in-hand down the cobble stone sidewalks to Monument Square to check out this year's Yule Tree. The air was crisp, cold and clean, and the moon gleamed with Jupiter shining like a diamond drop. The holiday lights of the Old Port sparkled, the shop windows gleamed with their winter scenes, and the city was quiet. Thomas Kinkade, eat your heart out.

I didn't have to get in the Holiday Spirit... the Holiday Spirit is in ME.
It's not like at the end of the Holidays we take off our Holiday Spirits like our winter coats and store it away for the Spring. No... instead it simply lies dormant until we rekindle it with a memory, an awareness, or a childlike wonder ... and then it springs forth like a burning inferno.

I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year. ~Charles Dickens

Paradise is Here, Paradise is Now..... Paradise is Holiday Spirit ....
