Hi everyone of Whyville! This is Chrissy37 here and if this article gets accepted, it will be my first one to be ever. =D.
That's not what I'm here to talk about today however. I want you all to think about Christmas right now. What did you first think of when you read the word Christmas? Hmmmm... That's a tough one isn't it? I have a vibe that when many of you thought about Christmas all you could think about was the gifts and the turkey dinners. I'll admit that's one of the reasons I get excited about Christmas. But that's not what it's about.
Many people do know this but half of the time they don't think about it and neither do I I'll admit. One of the teachers at our school mentioned to us that Christmas is celebrated at some schools because it is soo commercialized now. Everybody's always worried about what they are going to get, what's beneficial for themselves. I feel very terrible thinking of this.
Christmas has changed. We hardly even celebrate what it's really about. I'll tell you one thing, I am definitely going to make a change in my attitude, I am not going to be excited about the gifts I am receiving this year; I will be excited about giving and helping others. Because that's what it's really about! And it makes you feel good while you're at it! Christmas is one of those times of the year where for the most part everyone is friendly and welcoming to each other. What if we could do that all year round? You know, even a smile can brighten somebody's day!
Well, I'm off!
This is Chrissy37, thinking in a more positive attitude! =)
