I have always been a person who loved holidays. When I was a child, I would get so excited at Christmas time, I would get sick. Of course, it might have had something to do with the fact that I had sneaked in & ate a bunch of cookies & fudge! Of course, children are excited about presents, toys, stockings & the like. We can enjoy those things & hopefully will show good will to neighbors & friends, or anyone who needs help. That is important. But, also be mindful that we are celebrating Jesus's birthday. And, what his coming into the world meant for all people.
It isn't that time of year, but it is always important to be mindful of Christ & his place in each of our lives.
