What does Christmas mean to you?

Christmas means more than just presents. It means giving thanks, celebrating Jesus’ birth and how he started to save us. St. Nicholas and Santa are a part in Christmas too, but there is much more to focus on as well. We sing for joy and give love and count down to Christmas, make decorations and get a tree with lights and a star. Christmas is a merry time of year. I really think that Christmas means how Jesus started to save our lives and giving me and all of us a blessing.

Christmas means a lot to me. When I wake up, I see a gift on the floor at my door way. My parents normally will let me open it at breakfast. It will normally be a prayer card or a gift card but Christmas means more than presents. It means how my parents love me by giving me presents. We would normally make fantastic gifts for our parents, so we can love them as well.

Christmas means to me to go to your grandma’s and spend time with each other. Not cookies, not presents, not goodies. It is to be thankful for everything. You could spend time with your family and I will say a little about presents too. I do not just focus on just gifts.

To me Christmas means family and joy and waking up super early and running very fast down the stairs yelling, “Christmas!” So everybody wakes up, which doesn’t really work, but I still try. So they get up before everybody gets here. Christmas isn’t about presents and toys. It’s about sepnding time with family, spending time with my cousins and family is my favorit part of Christmas, especially when all of my family come over for breakfast. We say grace and pray to Jesus and his father which I love doing.

It means that I get presents and also get to see my family. Christmas is very fun when you get presents from St. Nicholas, but it also means something else, Jesus’ birth. Jesus is the start of Christmas. He loves all of us and wants us to spread Christmas cheer. The Christmas tree is very beautiful when it glows. It is like Jesus is the tree. Being thankful is good. One thing you can be thankful for is Jesus. Being loving is very important. You can love everyone and Jesus. Christmas means something special, love and Jesus.

Christmas means Jesus will be born into the world. A fantastic way to get together with family is at Christmas. On Christmas, I always thank St. Nicholas for all the gifts he gives us. One way we can be nice to Santa is give him cookies. If I get clothes, I can give my old ones to the poor. We should love one another and be thankful for all of our gifts.

I think Christmas is a time for your family and friends to get together and eat a big meal and have fun. Sometimes you don’t get any presents for Christmas, and you are mad or sad or even sad mad, but you can change your face when you are sad mad by having fun with your family and be grateful. Christmas is all about family and Jesus and having fun, and that is what I do for Christmas. I open presents and have fun with family and friends.
