    1: Christmas, to me, means spending time with people I love, giving presents, decorating, watching movies, playing in the snow (no matter how old I may get), making and eating cookies. Christmas means magic. 2: None, I've loved I think everything I've ever been given. 3: See 2. 4: I'm not sure I have one, I love it all so much. Maybe Christmas Eve night, when everyone is in bed but never sleeping, and all the anticipation in the house has reached it's climax. Simply fantastic. 5: A person, I'm afraid, it's looking like I won't be able to. He's one of my best friends, and I love him (how original). Unfortunately, I live in America, and he lives in Japan, where he has a fantastic job that he loves, which makes him unable to get in contact very often. My Christmas wish is that he and my other friends will be happy. My deepest selfish Christmas wish is to get a message from him, telling me he's sorry he's been away for so long but that he hasn't forgotten about me. But that probably won't happen. Ah well, so long as he's happy....
