I think everyone has their own true meaning of Christmas. I’m not a religious person, I never have been, so for me Christmas isn’t about religion. You celebrate how you celebrate and I’ll celebrate how I celebrate. You celebrate Christmas? Great. You celebrate Hanukkah, great. You celebrate something else? Great. You don’t celebrate anything at all, great. You do you, and I’ll do me. That’s my way of looking at things during the holidays. You do you, and I’ll do me. Like I said I’m not a religious person and I don’t pretend to be during the holiday season. If you go to church only on Christmas eve, or something like that, then great, you do you, but that’s not me. I choose to celebrate the holidays like a child. Yup, like a child.
I love Christmas for the movies, I love Christmas for the music, I love Christmas for the memories I have of celebrating with my mema, nana and poppy who are no longer with us. I love Christmas for the décor. I love Christmas for the joy of creating the Christmas tree. I love Christmas for time I took to pick out the perfect ornaments to fit both my color scheme I was going for, and the special ornaments I got to represent all the people I wish were still with us to celebrate the holiday season with me. I love Christmas because I’m reminded of the innocence of being a child. I love Christmas because it signifies the end of the year, you can reflex on your life in the last year, look back at how you’ve changed, what you’ve learned and how much better you’ll be going into the next year because of it all.
Some people might strongly disagree with what I’m saying. How can you celebrate “christmas” and not be religious? Well you have every right to think that. Just like I have the right to celebrate it how I see fit for myself. Like I said you do you, and I”ll do me. If we’re not harming each other in any way? Than honestly who cares?
In the coming days ( I could plan out exact days for each post but I’m likely to change my mind 12 times before I make a decision) I plan to share with you all my favorite things about Christmas. Favorite music, movies and meals. The décor, memories as a kid, favorite gifts, How I handle working retail during the holidays, and more. I’ve been looking for some inspiration for this blog, and the holiday season is full of it!
I can’t wait to share with you all my favorite things about the holidays ( and many even some things I’m not too fond of) and I hope you’ll share some with me too!
