The Real Meaning of Christmas
Christmas is not really about partying and stuff so I don’t want to put emphasis on having a party at my place. On the other hand, I really want my friends to get together again. Like Berka said, Thanksgiving was a blast and we really bonded. I want to feel that synergy again. Most of my friends I’ve spoken to also really wanted that, so I’m really undecided as to whether I should throw a party or not. What do you think I should do? Can you give me a couple of ideas?
When I started thinking about this I realized that everyone has their own ideas and traditions about Christmas. There are a lot of families who go to church and do the Christmas mass and contemplate on the meaning of Christmas and how it affects their lives. There are also a lot of folks who’ve made their own Christmas traditions and continued throughout generations. What is your Christmas tradition like? When do you open your Christmas presents? Is there a special dish that your mom makes? Is there a special Christmas dinner in your family? Or do you go out and play in the snow? I’d really like to hear from you and see how diverse all my readers are.
