What Christmas Means to Me

Akeirra Childress

Everyone has a tradition that they do for the Christmas Holidays. Whether it’s hanging up ornaments, hanging up christmas lights, or simply cooking a christmas dinner; we all have a christmas tradition. For me, my Christmas tradition is hanging up Christmas decorations, helping my parents cook a beautiful Christmas feast, and spending some lovely quality time with my wonderful and amazing family. We watch Christmas movies, while enjoying some laughter. We also gather around each other, hold hands and pray. After all Christmas is not about gifts; Christmas is about Jesus, family and just being around the ones you love. Christmas is a holiday of peace, joy, hope, faith, and laughter. For me and my family our Christmas tradition is enjoying each other’s company while being in the Christmas spirit.
