As the title says, it’s 3 days! 3 days until Christmas and I’m impatiently bursting with excitement 😀 I’ve been waking up my friends every morning with a steady (Though loud and excited) countdown and reminding them every few hours or so how close it is.
Yeah. I love Christmas.
The lights, the presents, the people, the remembering of the best story (Yay Jesus :D), and the overall atmosphere (apart from the people mauling each other over presents) is just fantastic. (Also, please keep in mind that that list was in no order whatsoever =P )
I think it’s very easy to get wrapped up in all the cool stuff we’re getting and ignore the people around us. It’s important to remember them and to be more concerned with helping them have an excellent holiday and be happy rather than getting your stuff first. When you put aside ill feelings of the past and your own fears and such, it’s amazing how much you can talk to people. You learn about them and sometimes find a really cool friend in someone that you might have been to caught up in yourself to notice before.
In the next few days before Christmas (And hopefully afterwards), I think it’s a good idea to make sure that your focus is on the other people rather than yourself. That isn’t to say that you shouldn’t be excited about what you’re getting (I’m CRAZY excited 😀 ), but it’s important to make sure your priorities are straight.
Merry Christmas, everyone 😀 Have wonderfully fun (And hopefully safe!) Christmastime ^^
Talk to you soon,
