The holiday season: can’t get enough of it, or can’t wait for it all to be over already? Has your attitude toward the end-of-year holidays changed over the years?
Over the years, Christmas has become a feast more and more intimate. I’m a person of faith, and for me, this is one of the most important feasts of the year. It comes after weeks of preparation thru the time of advent, and invites to pray contemplating the Child Jesus who comes to redeem us. I never get tired of the old traditions like singing carols in front to the Nativity scene, decorate the tree, interchange some presents, have dinner all together and go to the midnight Mass on Christmas eve.
Spend time together and pray together. That’s our Christmas’ essence. It may sound outdated or boring but it’s endearing and authentic. If you believe, it makes sense.
