Merry Christmas to you all!
It’s that time of the year. It’s the time of festivities, love, family, friendship and faith. It’s the time when differences don’t seem to matter too much. It’s the time where everybody gets along. It’s the time of the year when everything can be forgiven, when everything seems just right.
There’s an awful lot of good feeling during Christmas. This is my first time having a truly American Christmas, and I am loving it. So much fun, so much love, so much laughter.
The kids. I love the kids. I’ve mentioned this like a million times, but kids are the most honest representation of us – the energy, the fun-loving, the need for attention, the love, the wants, the jealousy, the change. Throughout the years we lose that innocence and carefreeness that used to be in us, by choice or otherwise. These kids are so fun to hang out with. It’s so fun just to be with them and pretend that there’s nothing else to worry about at all. It’s so fun simply just to ‘be’ and enjoy what is around you. It’s so much fun just to live. It has helped me understand better the delicate balance that is life. It has helped me to see that maybe there shouldn’t be a point to everything, because when I think of the good times, this will be up there at the top of the list.
And I wonder what the world would be like if this can last for the whole year. True, Christmas won’t be so special anymore then, but wouldn’t the world be an eternal, festive, jolly, fun place to be in? Sounds a little weird, but I’ll take that over backstabbing, crimes, and jealousy. There’s not many things that bring people together like Christmas.
So as the year winds down and as Christmas comes to an end, I hope for the world that we continue to retain the Christmas spirit, and may all find the gift of life a rewarding one.
