It’s a time for rejoicing, and presents are a great gesture to show our love and warmth for those who are loved ones. It is a great moment for Families, Fun, and Festivities so let them know how much you appreciate them with your warm wishes. ❆ May the holiday season end the present year on a cheerful note and make way for a fresh and bright New Year.
“Christmas is not a time nor a season, but a state of mind. To cherish peace and goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas.” – Calvin Coolidge
Christmas is a time for family, therefore you celebrate the day with close ones. If you know of someone who is experiencing a difficult time or is alone, invite them to cheer up with the festivities of your family. No one should be left out on Christmas. Also, the feel of giving is far greater than the bliss of receiving. There are countless ways to give, let that be donating to a charity, preparing some extra Christmas meal, or giving a gift to someone that otherwise wouldn’t have had it. You can still gather your family around the Christmas tree to open gifts this year—even if it’s virtual. You can use video chat using Zoom or Facebook Messenger, as it will keep the holiday spirit intact with visual interaction.
When I was small, all my siblings and cousins used to prepare our annual Christmas crackers on Christmas eve and also do some little music playing and singing for the whole family, playing instruments and acting. I would have loved to share with you those moments but childhood videos are embarrassing and will probably never see the light of day. However, it was a fun way for us kids to collaborate and present the older family members with some entertainment – even if we weren’t all that good. These traditions live with the children and they can recall these precious moments when growing up and have memories to cherish. You can also bake your favorite cookies or prepare Christmas meals for friends, family, or give them to someone as a charity. Go on packing Christmas crackers and singing out your most loved Christmas carols.
Here’s to the Christmas!
