Christmas: It’s not about the gifts


Krista L.


When people think of the word Christmas, many people, especially kids, think of presents and Santa Clause. Don’t get me wrong, earning Christmas gifts are great, but there is more to Christmas than gifts. So what is Christmas about?? Christmas is about spending time with your loved ones and being thankful for what you already have. Throughout the year, many of us or our family is busy with school or work and we are not always available to be with our families and enjoy our time as one. Christmas is also a time of generosity. Everyone is not blessed with having food to eat or water to drink, and those who have these things often take them for granted. The next time you sit at a dinner table with your family and eat the delicious food that you were given, be thankful for the wonderful people and life you were given.
