A festive festivity !

The start of a holiday season!

Christmas is a season where families get together and enjoy the holidays with a big dinner. For many who are religious this holiday represents the birth of Jesus Christ.  Many families mark the day by going to church and singing religious hymns. Due to the rise of commercialism kids are waiting more for their presents than the festivities!

Christmas is a season where parents get ready to juggle cooking, baking and maybe driving out of town relatives to see the city! The holiday season is about spending time with friends and family. But with the amount of advertisements and flyers wanting comes naturally for several young children. These days many children and their families have forgotten the value of the holiday season. Instead of spending time with one another, the highlight is the unwrapping of gifts. This has been the result of extreme commercialism. Yet, many families are becoming more conscious and spend time by helping to bring a smile to those in need.

Instead of always buying a gift, several families have found new ways to celebrate this festive season. Many children make their own Christmas cards and make their own personalized gifts. This allows families to explore their creative and artistic side! With a bit of love and some laughter a beautiful creation can be made in no time!

Christmas can be a time of giving and sharing. Many families help their communities by helping at shelters and regular food banks. A simple gesture of kindness can bring a smile to many faces.

In conclusion, the holiday season is a time to be spent with friends and family. We can all help out in simple ways to bring a festive cheer to the community. Have a great holiday season with your loved ones!
