Christmas will always require celebration for me. I grew up with my mum drumming into me how important Christmas is, how important it is to celebrate the occasion of Christ’s birth. Growing up in church has made Christmas a more spiritual occasion. It was all about the birth of the Saviour, the Word being made flesh. It has always been the day of the year that reminds me most of God’s love, grace and mercy. That’s why, no matter how small, Christmas had to be celebrated, there had to be a tree, there had to be decorations to celebrate it, there had to be presents to share and there had to be a Noche Buena at midnight! There should always be an effort to be made for Christmas because all the gift giving and all the food preparation is part of the celebration. It is one of , if not the most important days in the Christian calendar.
Whatever you do today, however you celebrate the season, whatever your faith, have a wonderfully happy and very blesssed Christmas!
