What is it about toy trains that just says "Christmas" to so many of us? For some, it was a train 'round the Christmas tree. Or the memory of putting one together Christmas Eve night. Or coming downstairs to find one Christmas morning.
My little boy is a big ole high schooler now. But every time I hear this, I blink and am back to the Christmases when he was a roly-poly little scamp, his eyes lit up with the magic at it all, gleefully bouncing up and down at seeing a new wooden train set.
