Merry Christmas Everybody!!
Christmas is my favorite time of year! I love the lights, the decorations, the tree, and just the overall atmosphere of the season! Everybody seems happier, everything looks more cheerful, and everything tastes better. This is the time of year for peppermint mochas, eggnog, honey glazed ham, fruitcake, and peppermint bark. It’s the time of year that people drag out the lights and give their homes a cheerful glow. It’s the time of the year where families get together and share their love for the season and each other.
This Christmas was the same as many others before. I guess you can say that is what makes Christmas so special; the traditions. My family always makes a big meal for both Christmas Eve and Christmas day. The Christmas Eve meal was at our house. My cousins, aunts, and uncles came over and we got to enjoy a great dinner together. Then my family always goes to church. This year, my sister and I sang in the church choir and the pastor gave a beautiful message and reminder of the reason for the season. After church, my family goes back to our house for coffee and pie. We open the gifts that we all got one another and then quickly get in bed so we aren’t there when Santa comes.
Christmas morning my siblings and I go upstairs to see what Santa brought. We open our stockings and just spend a relaxing morning together in our pajamas. Sometime in the afternoon, we go over to my aunt’s house for another huge meal! We then play games with the family and just have a fun time together.
I love Christmas and everything about it! I attached a picture of one of our cats. My sister put a bow on its head. :) I hope everyone enjoyed their Christmas as much as I did mine!
