What does Christmas mean to me?
In a nutshell, it is the time when I am thankful for the blessings I have received and a time when I can pass on those blessings to others.
The giving of gifts is my way of expressing my thanks to my near and dear ones. The ability to give and the joy on their faces are both His blessings for which I am immensely thankful.
Each year my Christmas is spent with my family at home and each year we invite a friend over - someone who has no one to spend Christmas with - a way of sharing our joy with others.
Each year I buy a Christmas ornament for our tree - one each for my children - this is my Christmas tradition. It reminds me of each wonderful year I have spent with them.
And each year there are 2 ornaments that must be hung on the tree - my children's Christmas tradition.
This year's ornaments:
And these that must be on the tree:
Have a Blessed Christmas. Peace, Joy and Love to all of you.
