Christmas time is here. For many families it’s the one time of the year where gifts and smiles shine as bright as the lights hanging from roof tops and glittering ornaments on trees. For others, the simplicity of life is gratifying enough. In speaking with a few people from the community, they were asked to express what Christmas means to them. Here are the responses.
“For Christmas I want to be home with my mommy.”
Amanda Keys and Romier Prince
“Christmas is a wonderful time celebrating the birth of Christ. Christmas is about God and Jesus and coming together as family.”
“Christmas is a time to spend with family. I’m thankful for all my blessings!”
“Family is important during Christmas. We should spend time together celebrating Jesus’ birthday.”
“Christmas is about the gift of Jesus. It’s a time of giving. Give to others.”
