Christmas is about celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ as a traditional family holiday with lots of treasured moments.

Santa Claus also plays a vital role as he flies around the world in one night to make the world a bit happier.

There are tons of lights and decorations throughout many neighborhoods inside and outside of the houses. It must have taken so much time though to make shopping lists, purchase presents, cards and gift wrapping paper, all the driving and shopping increasing the global carbon footprint. Yet everyone loves that feeling of waking up Christmas morning and going downstairs for breakfast and gathering for opening presents. The spirit of the holiday is then portrayed by the gross domestic product of toy-producing and consuming countries if toys were bought at all. Still it’s not about the presents. It’s about the tree! Look at those ornaments…

The pine tree in the house smells wonderful. Eating peppermint candy canes on the couch by the fireplace is magical. Playing with your puppy that you haven’t seen in forever makes for a more joyous morning. The traditions are fun. The customs are real and displayed in the types of food eaten whether: ham, turkey, beef, pork but it always tastes so delicious because your mom or grandmother made it. Enjoying family time is awesome. Returning home to a good atmosphere where you feel comfortable is great. Seeing old friends is a nice way to reconnect and catch up for lost time.  The holidays are an exciting time where you realize how much you have matured as well as others around you. Also as it’s coming to the end of the year, you begin to ask yourself more questions about what you need and want in life.
