I feel like

I am playing hide and seek with the  Christmas Spirit.


I put up my tree, lit it up ,hung some decorations on it and just when I thought I caught

a glimmer of the Christmas Spirit

it was gone.


I put my dog’s festive Christmas collar on him last night- it is decorated with holly

wreaths and snowflakes-

and I thought I felt something behind me,  I felt a happy little tingle go up and down my


could it be the Christmas Spirit? I wondered.

It didn’t matter, whatever it was disappeared when  I turned around.


I hae been writing  stories about snow and ghosts and I’ve been listening to hours of


carols and just when I start to smile I look up and that sense of adventure and fun is

gone as if it had never been there.

Poof. It must be some kind of cruel magic. Gone.



like a snowflake that follows you into the house

and falls to the ground when you take your jacket off

it melts away, just like that.


I guess I’ll keep looking for

the Christmas Spirit.

I’m fond of ghosts, so I won’t mind if they just sneak up and say ” Boo.”
