What Christmas means to me

When I hear Christmas I think of Christ. I think that because Jesus was born on Christmas. I also think of The Star that Joseph and Mary followed to get to the town that had the inn. But, there was no room in the inn so Jesus had to be born in the stables. I also think of the lamb that kept Jesus warm while he was first born.

Another thing that I think of is gifts and eating with my family. These give me warm and precious memories. That is what I think of when I hear Christmas!

When I think of Christmas I think of giving gifts and my family .I also think of going to three different places. First, I celebrate at my house .Then, I go to one of my grandma’s . The next day my dad’s brother’s family comes and we go to my other grandma’s house. It is fun to exchange gifts. I love Christmas so much.

Family and celebrating, this is all part of Christmas. These are my 2 points on this list. Christmas is seeing your family and celebrating. This day is my ABSOLUTE favorite because this practically the only day I get to see A LOT of my family. Celebrating is also important to me. Celebrating seems to help make people happy. We celebrate the birth of Jesus. These things mean a lot to me!  Merry Christmas 

I think Christmas means time with family and seeing the joy on your parents' faces when they see the joy on yours. When my Mamaw and Papaw come over, I get to see them, usually the first since fall break. They are always glad to see me. When they come, it really ties my Christmas together!

Another thing I like about Christmas is opening my presents with my family snapping pictures. When my mom and dad see the joy on my sister's and my face, they have such an excited look!

What does this merry time of the year mean to you?
