Nostalgia = Christmas

that season is here again.
cool breeze. nostalgic aura.

i don't get why every year that Christmas occurs, i get this feeling of a nostalgic high deep in my chest.
like there was something that HAD happened before that makes we want it to be Christmas every single day of the year.. and yet not remember what did occur.
there's just this sense of bliss that the celebration brings with it every time it comes that you can rarely find in any of the occasions that take place within the 365 day span of a year.

looking back at all the past 17 Christmases i've had, almost 5 of those, i can't remember. leaving 12 to fill in the expectations and feelings that come back whenever this time of the year comes. maybe within those 12 Christmases, i really felt what it was like..

what does it really feel like? is there a specific feeling that is mutual for all the couple billion people in the world that you SHOULD also feel during this season?

i'd like to think not.

coz i don't think that i feel this way every year--as i feel now.
as i had thought of and felt and said before.

i write down now.

"you don't need all the pieces of the puzzle of life to feel happy.
even if your family is away, the piece of friends may be enough to fill that gap.
even if you're not with the girl you're crushing during this season,
maybe the celebrations would get your mind of her..
even if you live in constant fear of the future,
maybe having RIGHT NOW--the present-- is enough.

you don't need all the pieces of the puzzle of life to feel happy.
you just need the right pieces at the right time. =]"

nostalgia. nostalgia.
maybe it's not nostalgia i feel during Christmas.

it's anticipation of yet one great memory to fill in the gaps.
