Blogmas day 21 - 25 | Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas everyone!

I believe the purpose of life is to be happy, and for me that happiness comes from following the teachings of Jesus Christ, holding family extra close, and loving others more than myself. It's definitely not easy, but it's so worth it, and Christmas brings these three things together so beautifully. We must always remember that the holidays are not about receiving gifts, it's more about giving, and loving and appreciating others.

So I dare you to make someone else's Christmas extra special! Do something for someone in need, or try to put a smile on someone else's face :)

I'm very curious to learn more about Christmas in other parts of the world, so please write down in a comment how Christmas is celebrated in your country, or what your family's holiday traditions are! Also, what makes you happy? :)


  1. In my country Christmas is in January, since people of Orthodox religion follow the old calendar. I'm not religious, so I celebrate this one but just for the atmosphere :)

  2. I'm very close to being what most people think an atheist is though I consider myself agnostic about the possibility of a higher power/afterlife. But I like Christmas as a secular holiday as pretty much all I partake in celebrating have pagan roots like the yuletide of German paganism. Such as Christmas trees, gift giving, and whatnot.

    We basically put up a tree every year. Decorate a little. Turkey and ham is a common main meal served but I usually eat something different due to being a vegetarian. We usually gather for Christmas eve for the extended family but keep a rather "main" family one for Christmas day.

    So we wake up with gift unwrapping and enjoy the rest of the day.

  3. Merry Christmas! One of my Christmas tradition is I get a new Christmas Ornament for my tree.

  4. I spent Christmas morning at church then the rest of the day with my family. Happy holidays to you!

  5. Just enjoy the day at our bay, hope a merry christmas was had there at your pad

  6. I spent my Christmas with my family, enjoying all the portuguese traditions :D

  9. We open presents from Santa and family on Christmas morning. We have presents in our stockings too. We leave out cookies and milk for Santa on Christmas Eve. He comes down a chimney or the door. Some leave food for reindeer, but I never grew up doing that.

  10. This post served as a lovely reminder of what the season is truly all about. I hope you've enjoyed a beautiful Christmas with your family and that you have a happy and healthy year ahead! :)
