It's Christmas Time

Any Gift Idea In This Coming Christmas Day?

By Leslie G. -
No matter our age, our race, or our nationality; No matter our heritage, our upbringing, or our traditions; At Christmas time, we live, we laugh, and we love and shops with Christmas gift idea. It is that time of year when you walk outside, the air smells crisp and the skies are a little grey. Jack Frost has touched the windowpanes with his magic fingers and the ice scraper needs to come out of the glove box in order to scrape off the front car window.

Streetlights take on a new aura as their red and green lights blink on and off. You begin to drive down the side streets on your way home to see who has the best light show on their lawn, and the children have sent their wish lists off to Santa for hot Christmas toys. If you have not guessed what time of year it is, it is Christmas time.

Christmas itself represents a Holiday season that has taken on countless meanings all over this diverse country of ours. From snow-covered hills to pink lights on palm trees, nativity scenes to peppermint pigs. Ebenezer Scrooge and The Grinch, as well as Miracle on 34th Street and It’s A Wonderful Life, all hold a special place in our hearts. Some of us may travel across the country during Christmas time, while others of us may simply travel across the street to get unique Christmas gifts or that fresh Christmas Wreath. 

No matter what our Christmas traditions are, we all share one very strong connection. Recent events in our country's history. This time of year we gather together with friends and family. As we gather, some of us may celebrate the birth of Christ, some of us may light candles on a Menorah and get decorated Christmas trees, and some of us may simply unwrap gifts with glee without a second thought. Yet there is no doubt, no question that we all gather to celebrate each other. 

We gather to celebrate life, and family, and those we love. We gather to enjoy Good Food, accepting hampers for Christmas, good conversation and good company. We reminisce about past holidays, remember those we love who are no longer with us, and plan for the future.

We share photos, we share Christmas gift baskets, and we share laughs. At Christmas time, we look for the innocent sparkle in our children's eyes as we help them to create their own memories, and tuck them soundly into bed with a smile on their faces as 'visions of sugar plums dance in their heads'.
