After spending the day out doing various things,  Jireh and I returned home and decided to watch movies.  Her "must watch" was Polar Express while mine was National Lampoons.

That caused me to think.  National Lampoons is but one of the movies that put me into the holiday spirit. I feel the same way about some songs,  though.

For instance,  "Silent Night" by The Temptations is certainly a Christmas go-to, as is Donny Hathaway's "This Christmas."

In my mind's eye, when I THINK Christmas, I SEE candy canes. I think about being surrounded by family,  and eating soul food.

What about you? Are there some things that just signify Christmas to you?
