Thanks for reading this! Since it is a holiday, I'm flattered that you're willing to sit and read this, when you should be hanging out with the fam! ;) Don't feel too bad, this one's a quickie. I usually post my favourite five things each Wednesday, but since today is Christmas (insert loud clapping and cheering here!!), I have just one favourite thing to share with you.
And that thing is Christmas!! Today's the day when we gather with our friends and family, wait in anticipation to open our presents, are eager to see others reactions to the gifts we gave them, and eat a delicious turkey!
But I'd like to quickly remind you of the true reason for Christmas. It's to celebrate Christ's birth - not only that, but His life and the example He set for us. Christ gave His life for each and every one of us and showed us how to live perfectly and show charity and love for others. This Christmas season, I challenge you to do at least one kind anonymous act for someone. It could be something as simple as doing the dishes after dinner (without being asked), so your mom - who worked ridiculously hard to make it - doesn't have to. You could also go visit someone lonely in the hospital. The possibilities are endless! Just do something to help another person. You could even just tell someone you love them and give them a hug. That is the true meaning of Christmas.
Here's a great little video that you should watch! You'll love it.
So, enjoy your gifts and the time you spend with your family, but also remember to be kind and loving. Celebrate CHRISTmas!
