The Best Christmas Present!!

     pexels-photo-264988.jpeg

         Christmas one of the greatest times of the year!! I love Christmas! For me, Christmas has always been my favorite holiday.  I think it is my favorite holiday because at the age of five I received the greatest gift of all.I say this because my father rarely saw me as a baby. He always worked and we will probably see him every three months or maybe a year later. So, basically, when I was younger we did not celebrate Christmas with my father because he was always working. He worked so much because when I was a toddler many difficult situations happened in my family. My father had to do everything to help my mother support us. He traveled to get a better job so he can help support us. At the age of five for the first time, I got to experience my first Christmas with my father.  I was so excited because I had never seen a tree with ornaments. Where I grew up Christmas was celebrated but we could not afford the ornaments, tree, and gifts. Christmas was celebrated in another form, however, it was also beautiful. The first Christmas that I celebrated with my dad, mother, brother and other family members was amazing. It was a time of joy and being with the family. For me, the best Christmas gift was spending Christmas with my father after so many years. My father for me has always been an important person in my life. That Christmas that I spend with my dad I was very happy because I finally had my first Christmas that I can remember with him at the Age of 5. Although my dad worked a lot I know he did it for us.So, every Christmas I  always remember my first Christmas.        My dad loves Christmas. My dad might not get us presents but what he does do is give us love. So, this year I am still excited to spend Christmas with my father. I love how he always tells jokes on Christmas. So the best Christmas Present that I received was spending my first Christmas with him. Remember to always remind your parents that you love them.  I say this because they might have done something for you that you do not know about. pexels-photo.jpg

What Thanksgiving Means To Me…

pexels-photo-255441Thanksgiving a holiday that brings everyone united.  It is not about the food. It is not about the Black Thursday or Friday. It is about being Thankful for family, home and many great things in your life. It is about spending quality time with your family. It is about making memories that you will always remember.  It is about forgiving a family member that might have done something wrong to you. It about sharing the food with your family and those who are less fortunate. Personally, for me, Thanksgiving  is a holiday that we should spend with the family and show that you love them. I say this because they might be there right now but someday they might be gone. There is a saying “You don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone.” So be Thankful for what you have this Thanksgiving.  Remind your family that you love them and how special they are to you. Let me know in the comments: What Thanksgiving means to you?
