Christmas was always such fun as a kid! You looked forward for weeks to wake up Christmas morning and see what Santa had brought you. On Christmas Eve I would help my mom put milk and cookies out for Santa. As I went through my teens and high school, Christmas began to lose its meaning and it was only about the gifts you received.
Christmas once again had a lot of meaning when you had your own children and could enjoy the traditions of your youth with them. And seeing their faces when they opened their gifts – and noticed Santa had drank his milk and ate his cookies – was priceless!
Now, in my latter 50s, Christmas is much simpler. There are no little feet running down the stairs to the Christmas tree – their faces lit up as they see all the beautiful presents wrapped and under the tree. Now it is really about the true meaning of the birth of our Savior – Jesus Christ. But I still have things I want for Christmas:
- To ride each of my bikes
- To see motorcycle parts under the tree
- To spend the day with my family – especially my beautiful gal: @RacieSicilian
- To see maybe one or two people (just kidding – I am good with seeing everyone)
- To eat and drink and finish the day with a nice cigar and a top shelf bourbon!
And there is this:
Merry Christmas from Grey Beard Biker and his beautiful gal, Racie! We love you all!
