Hey, everyone! How are you? Are you having a good weekend so far? I’ve finally finished all of my exams! Yay! And now, it’s time to relax. :) I am so excited about Christmas coming up. Here are twelve things I love about Christmas.
1. The beautiful lights
I love walking down the street looking at all of the beautiful lights that our neighborhood puts up every year. It’s so beautiful.
2. Christmas Eve Service at Church
This is my absolute favorite thing about Christmas. Looking around my church during the Candlelight service, everything is so pretty!
3. Reading the Christmas Story
Jesus’ birth is the whole reason we celebrate Christmas in the first place. Without Him, there wouldn’t be a Christmas so, reading what the Bible says about His birth is one of the most important traditions of Christmas.
4. Putting up decorations
I love helping my family decorate the Christmas tree and the fireplace for Christmas. It doesn’t feel like Christmas until all of the decorations are up.
5. Christmas music
What is Christmas without Christmas music?
6. Remembering all of God’s blessings
I love this time of year because we are getting ready for the New Year but also celebrating Jesus who came as a Baby for us. During Christmastime, I like to remember what God has taught me, how He has changed my life and how He had everything in His hands even when I didn’t realize it.
7. Christmas parties with my friends
This year, I was blessed to have made so many friends. We all got together this week to have a Christmas party and it was SO much fun!
8. Yummy food
My mom makes an AMAZING chocolate pie every year for Christmas; it’s so good! She also makes a great Christmas dinner with thread meat and potatoes and salad. My sister loves to bake so around Christmastime, she bakes up a storm and keeps me full with plenty of treats. :)
9. Having family over
I’m pretty sure this is a given but family is amazing. :)
10. Writing Christmas cards
Every year, I help my parents but designing our Christmas cards and writing the addresses on the envelopes.
11. Having a break from school ;)
I love going to school but I also love having a break from school to just relax and breathe without having a pile of assignments staring at me every day. Hehe
12. Giving gifts
I love shopping for / making presents for my family and friends. I love seeing their reaction when they open up their gifts. It’s a lot of fun. :)
Well, there you go! What are some things that you love about Christmastime? I hope you all have a great day and a fantastic Christmas Break. :)
