Confession: Christmas Commericals Make Me Cry.

November 9, 2009

i must sounds like little miss emotional all the time, because every time i write i either:
a. just got finished crying
b. am anticipating crying
c. crying.

i promise i am really happy... maybe that's why i cry, because i am so happy. i don't know. but i have realized something over the past two days...and basically the past 12 years:

Christmas commercials, no matter how silly, dorky, or overplayed.... also make me cry.

So here is one of my favorites (pull out a tissue or 2)

even though i've seen that several times, my eyes always start to sting as if i were about to cry.
and now i know why.

it's because it makes me happy. so happy.

for a brief 30 seconds, one commercial can remind me of every wonderful christmas memory i have.
and i hope these commercials may do a little bit of the same for you guys too.

ps. i just got my plane ticket for a christmas in new zealand! it may not be snowy outside, but i'll be with my family. and that makes me so. stinkin. excited.

wishing you a very merry monday!

aww that was such a sweet commercial! As soon as he called her again from his building I was like "They came to him! they came to him!"

I love family.
