What is Christmas?
For many people, Christmas is the time of year to think about buying
time with the family and possibly eating and drinking too much!
Of course, you’re a religious person, you’ll be celebrating the
birth of Christ and going to
church. Many of us, however, are happy to have a few days off work
and, for the lucky ones,
an end-of-year Christmas bonus.
But what does the festive season mean for you? For me it’s a time to
look back at the year
gone by and to think about how I’ve spent it. Have I achieved all
the things I wanted to
back in January? Am I happy and satisfied with the way the year
has gone and what goals,
both personal and professional, will I be setting for myself for
the coming year?
So, for me, it’s a time of reflection, a time to re-charge my
batteries and look ahead with
anticipation and expectancy. Above all Christmas is a time to give
thanks to whatever God
you may have. I’m not a religious person, but I am thankful for family,
for friends and for life.
