A lot had been said about Christmas. Some like it, some don't. I've read about how people don't like the commercialism attached to it and how it makes people worry about getting all the gifts for their loved ones. Having considered all that, I'd still like to say that I love Christmas. I really do. I am not religious but I get excited about it.
Because it reminds me of the happiness of my childhood. Well, I did not get so much from Santa during those years - except for a sock full of sweets - yes every year! At the time, we did not use decorative socks that you can now buy from the shops - we used my father's old socks! I remember I'd get the longest ones for me and my sister because I thought we'd get more sweets in them. Well, we didn't. LOL.
I grew up in a Christian environment. Back home, Christmas is a big thing. I love this time of the year when everybody is on holiday, people get together to celebrate, children are happy and excited, enemies forgive each other, friends and families swap gifts, it's festive everywhere and Santa Claus comes alive once again in the hearts and minds of the little ones!
You may find this post excessively sentimental for your taste but Christmas is sentimental, isn't it? So please forgive me because I have to write it anyway - I love Christmas because it's the time of the year when I see all things beautiful around the world. Friendship. Family. Love. Togetherness. Peace. Things that I wish to see more everyday.
What do you love about Christmas?
