There often times now when saying Merry Xmas may be and offensive gesture to some people.We do not mean to disrespect anyone’s views or beliefs,but at this paper,we believe.
As we soon lose the rights to freedom of speech, and religion, it is a pleasure to be able to say these words Merry Christmas everyone.
As the joyous days countdown, we get ever so closer to what I would call family and friends time.It is a time where friends and family should meet at the half way mark, forget their differences and enjoy one another’s company.
Since time immemorial, Christmas has been the season of spreading good cheer, of spending time with your family and of sharing, caring and giving. Of love and compassion and of family bonding. However, it is not a surprise that a large number of people nowadays do not spend Christmas with their families. While some of them are too busy with other pursuits, the vast majority of these people do not spend Christmas with their family because they do not like doing it.
Some may say I do not believe in Christmas. Then Spend quality time with your kids. Christmas is a good time to teach your family, especially children about values like love, compassion, giving and sharing. Try to include the whole family in different Christmas activities like festival related cooking, decorating the house and the tree and wrapping up gifts ecetera.
Christmas means something different to every person and family, but everyone appreciates a simple card or a message. Many families take a family picture to send with a card, but even if you don’t do that, text messages or even emails wishing families a Merry Christmas will make them feel special. For your extended family that live far away, this might be the only time of year that they get to see your family so they do appreciate receiving something from you. Sending an actual card through the mail for the holidays can be a refreshing change for the recipient that can increase their happiness if they might be feeling stressed out.
