Picture this: It is Christmas Day. The snow is falling softly outside, and the fireplace is roaring inside. All the presents have been opened, and you can hear your cousins, nieces, and nephews giggling over their new toys. You look around and you see the gentle glow of the Christmas tree. You close your eyes and lean back as you listen to Nat King Cole softly croon under chatter of your aunts and uncles.

Ahh, what a lovely moment.
