How I see Christmas


By Lisetta Woluchem
That time of the year when you can’t help but pray to avoid tragedy.
That time of the year when you can’t help but feel giddy with joy.
That time of the year when you’re…..aargh! Super excited.
That time of the year!
Everybody loves Christmas. OK, maybe that’s a little over the top. Not everybody, majority of people. But, really who wouldn’t love Christmas?
It’s an awesome season. It’s got its own special weather. The calm, the quiet, the euphoria, so what’s there not to love?
Christmas gives birth to a new day, a new dawn, a new life, a new hope, a new reason to look forward to the coming year. I feel good about Christmas. Well, who wouldn’t feel good to be alive and celebrate a remarkable end of year?
It is believed that the son of God who is reverenced by almost all of mankind was born on Christmas day.
On this day, a child is born.
On this day, a son is given.
And this time of the year has been set aside not only to celebrate His birth, but to celebrate life, family, achievements.
This period gives birth to different festivities, different celebrations and every culture has something remarkable to do during this time.
Something that’s not occasionally done, an event that keeps people giddy with anticipation.
The joy of the season is priceless!
Having something worthwhile to mark the remaining days of the year is brilliant to say the least.
For most, Christmas is the only time they have in the year to hook up with loved ones, family and friends. What greater joy is there?
Most people don’t celebrate Christmas, or stopped because something tragic happened to them during this time. I know sometimes, things happen that make us lose every atom of care we once owned and live as though we aren’t living.
I’m not oblivious to the soothing relief that comes from some memories no matter how painful, but it really is time to let go… Let go of the weight. Let go of the burden, the sorrow.
I’m not asking you to let go of the memory, I’m asking you to let go of the hate and anger.
It’s time to hold on and move on. It’s time to open up your heart and let love seep through. 
It’s time to partake in the blessings that come with this season. Because, trust me, it’s a whole lot!
Give this Christmas season away. Don’t hold on to that love. Put a smile on someone’s face and watch this Christmas unfold into something beautiful.
Make someone happier this season by giving just a piece of your heart. It doesn’t have to be too much. A warm smile can actually do the trick.
Forget about all the reasons you think celebrating this season isn’t worth it, and think of the one reason why it is.
Remember, the worst thing that happened to you may be the best if you don’t let it get the best of you. Return some spark into your life. O yes, you can.
The joy of the season is there for the taking. It doesn’t matter where you spend it, or whom you spend it with.
Show love to someone this season, and experience first-hand the miracle of love and it’s endless wonders!
