Christmas is in the air!!! Its my favorite time of the year … Family, friends and fiesta!!!
People always look forward to holidays especially students – anything that is translated roughly as ‘no school’ then we’re down! Christmas has this different atmosphere though. Its one of the shortest holidays ever yet the most celebrated and the most anticipated. Coupled with the fact that its the end of the year, its a season of love where families reconnect and reflect on the year – hardships, good times and how they reacted through them all.
The ultimate proof of love is the real reason for Christmas! Christ was born to come and redeem us so we can be reconnected with God the Father. As December’s round the corner and we immerse ourselves into the ‘Christmas spirit’, let’s not forget the real reason for the season and celebrate with a grateful heart.
We should also use this time to reflect on the true definition of love. Love for our families is natural so during this period coming together seems almost normal but do something different this year and extend love to an orphaned child or that person in your office who’s always alone … Let’s make this year a Christmas to remember – one full of love and love indeed!!!
Also remember to appreciate your friends and family, they won’t be there forever so let everyone know that you love them and you’re grateful to God for the fact that they are in your lives. I never really appreciated this period till I came to school. I took it as a usual occurrence but Christmas in my house somewhat begins in November with my dad’s birthday and ends in February with my mum’s. My siblings and I fall in between … And being in school during this period has made me realise that you can never over emphasize the importance of loved ones around you!!!
Get into Christmas spirit people and remember touch a life this year. Santa’s recruiting you to deliver early Christmas presents – Make it a December to remember for you and for someone else!!!
