A festival of giving
Christmas is fading away, the trees are coming down and the lights are switching off. Time then to consider, as the last of the Christmassy feel leaves the country, what is Christmas really all about? Is it about overindulging yourself and overeating or is it about family? Is it all about having a good time, or celebrating some old religious festival that nobody really cares about? I would say it’s none of these things. In jest, two of my friends said this to me at Christmas time:
“Hope the Christmas holidays are going well. Remember the real meaning: presents.”
“And remember, Christmas is all about the presents.”
I’ve been considering that and they’re right. Christmas is all about presents, there’s simply nothing else to it.
