What does Christmas or Hanukkah mean to you?

Friday, December 16, 2011

I’m excited about Hanukkah (Chanukah) and Christmas. We celebrate both holidays – our kids are blessed in that way!

Our “Santa and her helpers” have been busy buying presents for the family. I’m excited because the families get to sit down together and enjoy a wonderful 3-day holiday – Hanukkah, Christmas Eve (Noche Buena) and Christmas Day.

We will be full house – my college guy will be home and thanks to my thoughtful crumbcatchers who put together allowances and savings to help one another with rent money so that every one will be home for the holidays.

I get teary-eyed during the holidays because I miss my family in the Philippines. But I know they’re having a fun time – no matter what.

I'm not sure if we'll have a White Christmas. Our snowstorm came early on Halloween!

I enjoy listening to Christmas carols. Luckily, my children love to play piano, guitar and violin!

I'm looking forward to the holidays because my family and I get to stay home, 
watch movies together (What a Wonderful Life wasn't a hit though), and just relax.

Chanukah is the Festivalof Light.
Christmas is the day Christ was born.
A day that brings new Hope, Faith and Love.

Let’s read to our children, and let them know and feel the true meaning of Christmas.
Teach them little acts of random kindness ~~

From my family to yours, have a wonderful Chanukah, Christmas and holiday season.
