Character Diary Entry #3: Christmas' First Flakes

It’s Christmastime in Odyssey, and
all those things Christmas songs remind us of over and over are happening. Jack
Frost nipping at the nose, lights all aglow, jingle bells swing and jingle
bells ring, rocking around the Christmas tree, and, of course, Mom and Dad can
hardly wait for school to start again. But I’m reliably certain my Mom’s never kissed Santa Clause.

And, in Odyssey, it will indeed, as
always, be one of those “white Christmases” Bill Cosby dreams of. And,
hopefully, a Holly Jolly Christmas as Burl Ives promises.

Then, outside of Christmas songs,
there all those things that, to a kid like me, just seem magical. A drip from
an icicle landing on your chin. Snowflakes under a microscope. The first snowball crunching into shape in
gloves. Finding a leaf, a remnant of the recent fall, beneath the snow.

Then there’s Christmas list. I want
a new fingerprint kit, some new books, and that kind of thing. My somewhat
different brother… wants video games, video games, and more video games. It’s
going to be a long, noisy day after Christmas. Matthew wants… insect specimens,
a 70s remote control car to “tinker” with, and new programs for his computer.
He scares me.

Fall was such an eternity ago and
such a short time ago. As leaves fell outside my window, I wondered. Leaves
turn to beautiful colors, but when they do, it means they’re dying. But to us,
it’s just another beautiful part of fall.

To us, their death is beautiful.

And when snow falls, almost all the
animals disappear, and most plants are either dead or just sticks. The world
is like it’s dead. But it’s gorgeous.

Because of that.
