In our family, Christmas is the most anticipated occasion. This is the time when the whole family get together and catch up with each other. In the past, we gather at the old house and celebrate with old neighbors and some relatives. Since the old place burned down and the last of our family moved out, we have decided to rent a place where we can still do our old tradition of just exchanging stories, sharing food and giving gifts to the kids.
We all know the real meaning behind this celebration. This is the time when Jesus was born and we are all saved from our sins. But I also believe that this season is a time to be with families, be with people who matter, just as our savior spent his birthday with Mary and Joseph and the shepherds.
So from my family to yours, Merry Christmas!
