My absolute favorite time of year.
Christmas has a way of putting everyone in such a good mood. I feel people are ten times nicer and more forgiving. So much love and kindness can be seen and felt all around. It’s the season of giving. Oh! how I love Christmas time!!!
A few things that make me so happy are, seeing Christmas decorations everywhere, Christmas movies and Carols, the Holidays, family trips, Snow, Christmas parties, the food, the FASHION! You wake up and your mum is a slay queen lol. Everyone’s usually dressed up in their best attires. Plus, we also get to reflect on and celebrate God’s love and gift to us all. OK I’m sure we can all agree this holiday beats all others by a mile.
What are your plans for Christmas?
I would love to attend a Christmas party this year, dance, eat, meet new people, take pictures. That’ll be a lot of fun. I would also love to donate to an orphanage and try to put smiles on the kids faces.
The best part about this time of year, I’ll say is the nostalgia it brings.
Christmas season holds all my favorite childhood memories
Does anyone still do this?…
We used to cook so much food at home and take to all our neighbors and they’ll do the same, we would all end up eating each others foods for that day. I remember one Christmas morning, I was going out on my normal “food delivery duties”, holding my tray with both hands, I had 2 bottles of coke and a plate of food. I tripped and fell, and as I was going down I used my body and soul to protect that food, I skinned and bruised my knee so bad, but I made sure nothing happened to the tray of food, I wasn’t scared of getting into trouble or anything like that, I probably just didn’t want to “ruin” Christmas for everyone.
My family Christmas Traditions…
By December 1st every year we would have reassembled our Christmas tree at home and dusted and hung our Christmas decorations all around the house. Then we’ll start to stalk my mum, because we knew she would begin shopping for our presents. Whenever she gets back from work, we’d peek inside her bag. She got so good at hiding stuff we never caught her with our gifts in hand. On the 24th night, we would go to bed or pretend to, and we’d hear her room door open, then she’ll put our nicely wrapped presents under the tree, each of us with our initials, LL,KK,TP and me TL. My brother always used a razor blade or any sharp object he could find, to make a tiny peephole in the wrapping sheet, trying to see his present… (looking back now, I wonder why we couldn’t just wait a few hours. Lmho) Then at midnight, she’ll wake us up to pray and soon after, open our presents…oh the JOY every time!!!
Gosh I’m so grateful to God for my mum and everything she did and keeps doing for us…especially these little things like Christmas traditions (lol she also kept money under my pillow every time I lost a tooth, and some nights when it rained and there was no light, she’d put on candles and tell scary stories about her village and scare the bejeezuz out of us). I’m going to make sure I continue them with my kids. I haven’t bought a Christmas tree for my home yet, I only hang a few little decorations around, but I want my kids to grow up with some traditions like I did, I need to step my Christmas game all the way up!
