What Do You Miss At Christmas?

There’s something about the Christmas season that evokes a sense of longing. It may be a person, a place, or a time long past.

But, it’s something that most people can relate to and only seems to happen during the holidays. This quote captures the essence of that feeling.

If you experience the same emotion and know what you’re missing at Christmas (or think you know), please share in the comments. I’d love to hear your stories!

  1. For some reason, Christmas always makes me miss my grandparents and their house. Which is odd, because they didn’t decorate much for the season, and we always celebrated Christmas at our house. (Easter and Thanksgiving were often at their house.) But still, that’s what and who I miss!


    • I’d say that despite the lack of decorations or time spent there at Christmas, your grandparents represent the spirit of the season, which is family. Every great memory I have as a child is about people, places, and things that are connected with my “people.” Our grandparents (and for some, great-grandparents) are the elders of our tribe. There’s also the fact that they’re often the first close relatives we lose. No wonder Christmas conjures up memories of our time with them. Thanks for sharing!
