Christmas makes you want to be with people you love. I'm not saying this to hurt you, or because I want to leave you, because I don't. Meredith wasn't a fling. She wasn't revenge. I fell in love with her. That doesn't go away because I decided to stay with you.

Christmas... is not an external event at all, but a piece of one's home that one carries in one's heart.

Christmas is a necessity. There has to be at least one day of the year to remind us that we're here for something else besides ourselves.
