What Does Christmas Mean To You?

So with the time of the year being Christmas, those who know me well will say I’m a bit of a Scrooge. Not the biggest fan of some of Christmas at times as depressing as it sounds. For me growing up Christmas was all about The 3 Fs of Food, Family and Fun, and not about getting loads of presents. Yes me and my sister were well looked after at Christmas, but never spoilt at all. We were taught from a very very early age to appreciate any gift we received but also appreciate the family that spent time with us.

Every family has their own traditions for Christmas whether that be getting up at 6am to open presents or opening them after Christmas dinner. But if you think about it, everything you really do on Christmas Day such as presents and Christmas dinner revolves around spending time with your Family and loved ones.

This year for my family a different occasion will happen. Kelly and Her Partner have invited myself, parents, nan and most importantly the Dog, to hers for Christmas Dinner! Now her house is lovely but not huge at all, but I’m strangely looking forward to it. It’s something different but it’s a momentous thing for Kelly and Charlie as it’s their first Christmas in their own place, something which I am immensely proud of her for. The danger of all this is that she is cooking!! Yes she’s a good cook of every day food, but a big meal such as that, seriously does worry me, so if you don’t hear from me after Christmas, say a prayer or 2 for me and she’s probably poisoned me!😂

But like I said at the beginning of post, Christmas means something different to everyone of us and it’s not about what I think Christmas should mean, it’s about how you show the ones you love, you care and for just 1 day each year, you try to forget the sadness and stress of life and just enjoy life for what it is!:)

Until Next time,
