Yeah I consider it a very romantic and socially emotional time of year too. What i mean by that is that I know with my spouse over the past 13 years together I can still remember our first Christmas together and over the years how we have grown as a family and worked really hard together as a team. Christmas is the time of year that we can come together and love one another and love what the other person is all about...being a good cook (which he really is), musician, in depth conversationalist etc... and just really take time to appreciate one another. That can be very romantic becuase i find some points of a year are so hectic that we overlook things and just skip out on what makes us or them special...(hard to explain...). Anyway besides just the romantic time I find this time of year brings close friends closer and family stronger.. in my experience anyway. Some say it is a depressing and difficult time of year but I suppose I have been fortunate as yes I have have some crazy situations happen in previous years but it has never dampened my spirit..
