Christmas time is what you make it, and it's very special to me. Read on to find out why

Have really tried to embed this video. I hope it works.

Why I find Christmas so Special

If you are a millionaire, you could splash your money around at Christmas. Your Christmas list would be endless, with presents for everyone. You could sample the finest wines and your table would be groaning under the weight of every exotic food known to man. Millionaires don’t have to worry about the increasing cost of food, or petrol and unemployment. They have made it in life, and they can sit back and enjoy the fruits of their success

About me and my family

I have never been rich with money, even though I have worked hard all my life, and raised 4 beautiful children. Neither do I begrudge anyone who is. I count my riches with love. The love I have for my family and friends, and the love they give back to me. I may not be able to afford big presents this year, but my heart is full to brimming with goodwill towards everyone

I don’t care if I get presents back either, because I get more pleasure out of giving than receiving. To see the happiness on someones face because you have managed to secretly buy them the one thing they wanted, but couldn’t afford, is magic to me.

Why Christmas is Special to me

My idea of a special Christmas is the company of those I hold most dear. To celebrate that very special time of the year when our lord was born together, and to remember the true meaning of Christmas is all I ask. It costs nothing to go to a carol service, or enjoy a child’s nativity play, once again marvelling that a stable was all that our lord had when we was born that night so long ago.

Phil my eternally young son loves Christmas. He loves the bright lights, the Christmas tree adorned in all its splendour, the music, and the boxes and ribbons that presents come in. He is so easy to please, and when I see his smile of happiness when I put the dinner on the table it makes my Christmas complete. He is special, and life is uncomplicated for him. I will take a leaf out of his book and enjoy what I have, because it’s all very precious.
This conveys the spirit of Christmas so well

Carol, I too just love Christmas. I love giving to my loved ones. I love how even some of the scrooges are kinder during these times. I love the smell of baked cookies and other great aromas coming out of the kitchen during this time of the year. I also do not begrudge those that are rich with money and no, I have never been rich in that sense. I also am rich because of the loved ones that fill my life. This year is even more special as we do have our grandson. Yes this will be his second Christmas but this year, he is old enough to enjoy it all. Yes Dan and I shopped (first time) on black friday and we got a few items for Tristan we wouldn't have been able to afford if not for the great deals. Times have been hard financially for us, as it has been for most. All and all, this year seems to be stacking up to a great time. I just wish my daughter was not 2000 miles away, as I do miss her so. May you and yours have a wonderful Christmas my friend. Just a lovely presentation. Congrats on the star page, it is well deserved. As always, thank you for sharing.:)
