There are so many things I love about Christmas. As soon as bonfire night is over, I’m a bundle of Christmas cheer; singing carols, buying presents, spreading holiday cheer. There’s just so much joy about the holiday season. Want to know the reasons why I love Christmas so much? Well, let me tell you.
Christmas is such a joyful time of year. Everywhere you go, people are filled with the joy that Christmas brings with it. You walk down the street and see people singing carols. You experience charity more than at any other time of year. Christmas seems to bring joy that you can’t help but share with others. It’s a joy that’s contagious- I can’t help but smile when I see someone filled with the joy of Christmas. It makes me wonder why we don’t carry the joy with us throughout the whole year.
I love to give! There’s something about spending time, trying to find the perfect gift for someone which brings me so much joy. Maybe it’s the fact that you get to see the happiness on their face when they open it and you see that you’ve got it just right. It’s not about how much money you’ve spent on the gift but it’s about the thought that you’ve put into it and how well you’ve shown the person that you know them. (Don’t worry if you’ve left your Christmas shopping until the last minute! The Need To Live and I have you covered, with all the best discounts!!)
At Christmas, we have the perfect opportunity to consider what’s truly important to us. It’s a time to think about whether we want to be wrapped up in the commercialism of the season or whether we want to be present with those that we love. During the holiday season, we’re gifted plenty of time to spend with those we love, to solidify our relationships with them and to show them that we love them.
For me, Christmas is a time that reminds me of why I believe what I believe. At Christmas, we hear of the baby in the manager. It’s a reminder of where my faith started. I’m so thankful for this yearly reminder, a reminder of the roots of my faith. I hope I never forget the reason for the holiday season.

Losing one’s job is painful, it can be one of the most destructive events happening in ones life. I should know I have been through a few of them. Most recently I was laid off March 2nd, 2023. An unexpected shock as the organization I worked for gave no indication there would be any form […]
The pain of being laid off is affecting thousands, but mostly in big tech. It saddens me to say I was just laid off and although I did not work or one of the major big tech companies like Twitter, Alphabet and others we were still apart of financial tech. Here is a recent article […]
Happy New Year 2023! What the new year means to me, to you, to the world. It means something different for everyone. Some create resolutions for the new year to be new person, new goals. I am often reminded of when I would attend my local gym, a 24-hour fitness which by the way is […]
