Christmas traditionally has a religious sentiment. It is the time of year when billions of people gather to celebrate the birth of Christ, making it one of the largest cultural and religious celebrations worldwide.
Whatever your reasons might be for celebrating, doing it in love and with the people you care about is all that really matters. Here are a few things to remember at this joyous time of the year:
- Give to your loved ones
It is important to give, but give within your means. A lot of times we get caught up in the spirit of giving, and it completely escapes our memory to give not based on the dollar value, but from our hearts.
I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but don’t you think that sucks to give someone something you spent your last penny on, only for them to not have any appreciation?
Stinks if you ask me!
So do you know what to get your loved ones for Christmas this year?
If they are anything like my husband, it is impossible to buy for them. So let me offer a hand, head over to swaggtoimpress.com
I am sure you will find something for that hard to please someone, or that person that has everything.
- Love each other
On this mirthful day, the air is filled with music carols, decorations, gifts and great food. Make the most of this precious moment, this is a given event without exception, but we are not promised life.
Have a great Christmas, do all the things you don’t typically do. Like walking around the neighborhood and enjoying the Christmas lights of those annoying neighbors. This is by far our most favorite thing to do as a family.
Then if they happen to look out their window, you can always look the other way, pretend you’re just walking the dog.
While you are having a great time, are you wondering what everyone else around the world is doing on this special day?

While you’re at it, Christmas is about love, don’t forget to kiss that special someone under the mistletoe.
Why do we do this anyway? Well according to www.history.com/news/ask-history/why-do-we-kiss-under-the-mistletoe
- Spend time with family
The elation of spending time with family at Christmas is a moment to be cherished. Family is defined differently for everyone, and doesn’t necessarily mean the bloodline. Family is whatever you define it to be.
For over 14 years now, my husband and I have celebrated 60 days of Christmas every year. That might be a bit much for you, but the important thing is to spend it being happy and with the ones you love.
Get out the old Christmas movies, sit by your fireplace and watch to your hearts content.
