Christmas has a different meaning to so many people, some who celebrate it and some that don't. Some who believe in Santa and some that don't. People who spend it alone and people who join a large number of family members on the day. Some that are happy and some that are sad.So many variations on the meaning Christmas. There is no right or wrong, but i read the words " Its not whats under your Christmas Tree, but who is around it".
This made me remember a story told by my Nana at her 60th Wedding Anniversary. Nana and Pop were farmers who did it tough to support their family, and one year when money was tight the two daughters received a new dress for their dolls made out of some left over material.
My Mum and Aunty remember that story and Christmas but they said they never felt like they went without and they loved their new dolls dress and enjoyed their day all the same.
Even though my Grandparents may not of had a lot of money, but what they did have was a loving Family and people around them to show them Love.
So whatever your take is on Christmas, we hope that you have some Joy and Happiness around the tree.
