Merry Christmas!  This is one of my most favorite times of the year.  It is the time of the year where peace and happiness are promoted everywhere, even in the media.  I enjoy shopping with my wife for presents for our children.  Picking presents out and thinking about each individual child and imagining how happy they will be when they open their presents makes me happy just thinking about it.

Traditionally we would get together as an extended family at my parents house on Christmas Day for dinner, pie, and of course presents.  This year my parents wanted to pass on Christmas dinner and have Christmas dessert instead so each family can start their own traditions.

To me Christmas dinner with family was part of the Christmas tradition as I am sure it is with many families.  We’ll wait and see if this turns into a trend and if it does, my wife and I might start inviting everyone over to our home for Christmas dinner.

Another enjoyable part of Christmas is helping others.  Many areas have angel trees, giving trees, or some sort of organized system for people to buy presents for children that might not get any presents at all.  The act of giving makes me feel good inside.

If there isn’t an organized system that you are aware of or if you know of someone in need, take the initiative and maybe join together with a few other families and provide Christmas for the family in need.  Invite them over for Christmas dinner or drop a dinner off to them.

The feeling that comes around Christmas should be around all year.  Charity and peace shouldn’t be seasonal.  There are many ways to help others throughout the year.

Be grateful for all that you have and all that you will have.  Merry Christmas!
