Undoubtedly, Christmas is everyone's most favorite part of the year, next to their birthdays. Everyone loves to expect something because Christmas is the season of giving, most especially for children.
It is but a good way to bond, families have longer vacation time and children have the Christmas break to devote to playing and reading.
It is just a good feeling that my kids never really liked any other gifts other than simple ones, and so when my boy wanted a new "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" book, my sister gave it to him as a gift. The following day, the book is done.
My daughter wanted an original Barbie because what she always gets is a doll so close to what Barbie looks like but never the original, so when she asked for a Barbie, my best friend gave her the original one.
Christmas is for children, so I was glad that my kids got what they wanted for Christmas. It may be too
simple for adults and for those who have much but celebrating it with them and making them feel special the most inspires us to do a better job in raising our kids to stay humble and live with less luxury than those who have much.
We have had a simple Christmas dinner, but what is best is the togetherness that we enjoyed during Christmas eve. We may not have had fancy recipes on the table but what is important is that we have each other and remembering that the reason for Christmas is JESUS.
