Holidays are the most fun because of traditions and spending time with the people you love. Every holiday has unique traditions in and of themselves but as do the families celebrating them. Being in such a huge family it is pretty difficult for us to stick to traditions because we are rarely ever all together anymore. This Christmas was just like any other from my childhood though.
Christmas at the Jacobs’ home usually entails waking up close to 6:00am, ripping open our presents, and watching movies together all day long. A quiche is normally baking and at least 2 of the 7 siblings have a fight. What is a family reunion without the inevitable drama? Regardless of our silly tantrums, we look forward to the precious time we are able to spend together.
Christmas is Christian holiday that is celebrated on the 25th of December. It the day that Jesus Christ was born and people from all over the world come together annually to remember this event. It is also recognized as a civil holiday and is happily celebrated by non-christians and people from all walks of life.
One of the most common symbols and traditions of Christmas is the Christmas tree. Families will cut down or buy a pine tree a couple weeks before December 25th and decorate it with ornaments and lights. On the night of Christmas Eve, a jolly loving man called Santa Clause will leave presents for the children under the tree to be opened on Christmas morning.
No matter what your traditions are for the holidays we can all agree that they bring joy and allow us to look around at what we are thankful for. That is an extraordinary thing. Happy Holidays:)
