It’s officially Christmas time!! Woo hoo!!! Technically its officially been Christmas time for 8 days! I love Christmas for so so so so so so so many reasons!! The movies, the music, the sweaters, the hot drinks, celebrating Jesus. I love it all!! Ever since I was little I have loved Christmas! I’m not totally sure why I love it so much but I do. It’s happy, it’s festive, it’s Christmas!!!
I’ve been waiting to write this week because this weekend we had our Chi Alpha Christmas party, and I love the Christmas party!! It’s always fun because people dress up, and we eat and do white elephant, and who doesn’t love a good white elephant exchange!! It’s also strange because this time next year, new people will be at their first Chi Alpha Christmas party, and some people will no longer be there. This Christmas my family has a sweet little addition who will be celebrating with us, and it’s exciting!!! I feel like Christmas is a sign of so many new things. We, or I, celebrate Christmas because Jesus was born. The Saviour of the world was born and I get to celebrate such a wonderful occasion!! What a fun thing to celebrate!!! I also love Christmas because it brings people together, whether you celebrate Jesus or not, Christmas brings people together.
This week I went to my friends’ house and helped them decorate, as well as decorated my house with my roommates. My roommates and I had such a fun time decorating our little apartment. I even decorated my room, which was so fun! I love getting to decorate the house for Christmas because it mean fun tree’s and pretty twinkle lights. It means fun little Christmas baubles and Christmas movies!! Also all the Christmas songs I could ever think of listening to!!!! I also feel like people are nicer around this time of the year. I could also be making that up in my head because I’m happier during this time of year because it’s my favourite time of the year! But regardless I think Christmas is the best time around
.Christmas has always been my favourite and there’s really nothing that could change that. Christmas actually becomes more and more of my favourite with each passing year because of all the great memories that get made during this season. There are new things to laugh about, and new things to smile about. New kids get to experience Christmas for the first time, and new families get to celebrate the Holiday’s together. Friends get to go to fun parties and laugh about fun things together. New friends are made. New traditions are made. Then a few weeks later is New Years and then it’s the start of new beginnings.Christmas for me has also always been a time for me to look back on the year and appreciate the experiences I had and the memories I made. I know for a lot of people that’s New Years, and I do this on New Years Eve a well, but I start to think about all the fun times and the memories of the past year during Christmas because it means we are close to the end.Christmas reminds me of how extremely blessed I am by the people God has put in my life. Some of them I don’t talk to often, but when I do it is nothing but happiness. I am grateful for my friends and family, and I’m so so THRILLED to see what memories I will make between now and a year from now. To look back and remember the places I have been, the memories made, and all the friends I had the chance of getting to know better. Christmas will always be my favourite time of the year for so many reasons. Some times I wonder why, but then I sit down on nights like this, after a weekend of fun and dressing up and I remember all over again how much I love Christmas and why I love Christmas.
