--- do happen.

For very small children Christmas miracles can be as big as impressive gifts or as
small as - what I call - TIME OUT during endless bombing raids in the middle of 
one of the worst world wars. This was in Europe. 
When I was only three living in a country that was heavily fire bombed day and 
night, every day and every night, it sure was a miracle from heaven for us children
that during a few cold December days the bombings stopped. 
This was our Christmas present. 
Although this is long ago I will never forget, the two days in December, 24 until 
December 26, we had our little Christmas, with Christmas songs, standing by the
piano that my mother used to play so well. 
My father ? he was long MIA or somewhere in Russia frozen to death. 
Despite remembering this particular aspect of all of this, it does not bother me in
 the least, not to worry about the Christmas season anymore. 
I am just happy to be here where I am, on the other side of the ocean.  And have a
good time. 
Wish the same to all !
