All is calm...All is bright

Every year at this time I yearn for a Victorian Dickens Village-like setting.  I want to walk along a cobblestoned road while snow falls gently all around me.  I want to see the warm glow emitting from windows as I walk past and know that the family inside is warm and happy.  I want hear sleigh bells and the clap of hooves as carriages are pulled along, and the toll of church bells as they strike the hour.  I want to hear carolers as they sing Silent Night and smell chestnuts roasting on an open fire.  I want to step back in time to an era that was simpler, and Christmastime was enjoyed...  

In Prague, I have found this feeling that I search for every year come December 1st...for Christmas time in Prague is simply wonderful!
