As life change so does the holidays. When we get older we start viewing things differently such as Christmas. Thinking back as a child, all I thought about was gifts, gifts, and more gifts. Now I see as a day off of work and feasting. I forget about gifts and think only about rest and holiday dinner. When you’ve been stressed all year long and Christmas is a guaranteed day off, that’s something to look forward to. Family and blessings are what I think about everyday of the year so I don’t dedicate Christmas day just for that. I dedicated that day for me. Giving me time to rest and receiving hours of sleep.
When ever that day comes when I have children of my own then the meaning of Christmas will change once again because my view will change. I believe what we are currently going through will not only effect our daily life but our views on holidays too.
What does the holidays mean to you now? Comment below.
