Have you heard the song by Pentatonix called That's Christmas to Me? (In case you haven't, I've provided the video below.) It's a wonderful song, and I'm sure we all get contemplative at this time of the year. That's why I wanted to list some of the things that mean Christmas to me.
Seeing a Nativity Scene
Luke 2:1-20 in the Bible—the Christmas story
Spending time with my friends (who are my family)
Watching my multitude of nieces and nephews unwrap their gifts
Sipping homemade wassail by the fireplace
Watching the lights flicker on the Christmas tree
Laughing as the cats tear into the discarded wrapping paper
Sharing a meal with those who are the closest to my heart
And knowing that we get to do this all over again next year!
