Christmas is for kids. I don't believe in that. I am an adult and I still enjoy Christmas. I do love buying gifts for my kids. I love decorating the house for my kids. I love sewing socks for my kids t hang on our stairs. OK, it seems that I enjoy Christmas because of my kids... so it really is true that Christmas is for kids.. waaah! Christmas is a very special tradition here n our country and it is our responsibility as parent to teach our kids the importance of Christmas. We celebrate this time of the year as the day that Jesus was born. More than that, I believe that this is the time of the year that we look back on our year and reflect on our life. It is also the time of the year that our hearts melt, that we are more forgiving. I think that is what I want to teach to my kids, that Christmas is about GIVING. Giving something to your love ones and forGIVING people that mistreat you and also asking for forGIVEness to people that you wronged.
I also want to teach them that Christmas is about family. And I think the way we celebrate our Christmas is already a proof to them that this occasion should be spend with your family. Every year, it is a must that me,my siblings and my mom spend it together. This year, since we can't travel (our car is still on the insurance company.. gathering rust and waiting for miracle), they will be here with us this Christmas!
and since my family is already here this coming holiday, we are planning to have Sati's baptsimal on December 7.. so you better be ready guys..
