Merry Christmas Eve and Happy Holidays to all!
I hadn’t planned on making a post this weekend, but this just felt too important to not talk about.
I hear a lot of people saying that it doesn’t feel like Christmas to them, and the more I see or hear their reasoning as to why I think some have forgotten the real meaning of Christmas. It’s not measured by the snow on the ground, the presents under the tree, or the money in your bank account. It’s measured by the love in your heart.
The holiday season is a time to be around those you love and cherish the most. It’s a time to reflect on the year (both the good and the bad things that happened) and just be happy that you’ve made it this far. It doesn’t matter if you have the latest gadgets or not. None of those things matter at the end of the day or at the end of your life for that matter.
The Christmas story is a story centered around love, joy, and hope. Baby Jesus really didn’t care about what he got for Christmas and you shouldn’t either. Whether you’re a Christian or not don’t let the commercials brain wash you.
For some the holidays are a difficult time because they’re alone and can’t be with the ones they love the most. Be thankful that you can still be surrounded by love and warmth. Take time this Christmas to hug the ones you love and to thank them. Even if it’s just for breathing. Spread love and give joy.
Happy Holidays Everyone
