christmas is once again be celebrated this year. few weeks from now it will already be xmas. i came from a prayer assembly and the topic was about how to make this coming christmas meaningful. a lot were discussed and in our table.. i brought up giving food to street children in random. for example, you see kids in mercury stores attending to cars who would park in the said establishment or kids you see begging in stop lights. you can go around in your city and find them anywhere. you can fully understand the true meaning of xmas if you give or share your blessings those who are in need. how do you make this coming xmas more meaningful than the previous xmas?

My family usually gives out our old clothes for the year to the needy. Along with that, we give them canned goods and noodles. Christmas is all about giving and sharing the blessings we received. But we also have to do this with an open heart and mind, giving for the sake of bringing happiness to the people around us and not just for giving's sake. :)

Well, the usual thing that we do is a celebration with all of the family members/relatives present during christmas. They cancel their work just to spend christmas with us. Exchanging gifts, getting new clothes etc. but for me, being happy is what I only need to make Christmas be more meaningful.

I'll make sure this coming Christmas will be celebrated with so much gladness in my heart,lots of reasons to thanks, my father's cataract operation was very successful despite his age and hypertension history he was able to make it,thank God for that.Then I am glad I was able to cope up with lots of pressures in the graduate school while working in the university.
