My Family Celebrates Christmas
My family celebrates Christmas. It’s my favourite time of year. We are Christians, but it’s never really been overly religious or about going to church for us. We always just spend quality time with our family. Not just immediate family – but aunts, uncles, cousins and friends too!
I love everything about Christmas. Everything about a beautiful nativity scene, decorations, cooking, baking, gift giving, Frosty, Santa, Rudolph, The New Year Baby and mostly just spending time with friends and family.
My kids are really excited about Christmas this year. My 5 year old, he’s an old pro, but my almost 3 year old? I don’t think she remembers what the big fuss is about, but she is involved in the excitement anyway.
Yesterday my son and I had this conversation:
Andreas: Mommy, I can’t wait for Christmas! It’s only 12 days away! (totally not accurate)
Me: Well, we better remember to take the screen off of the fireplace so that Santa doesn’t hurt himself on the way down!
5yo: (Best. Face. Ever.) OR he could just use the door!
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! Whatever you celebrate – I wish you joy, happiness and love surrounded by friends and family, because to me, that’s what it’s all about.
