It’s one day before Christmas and I think I had everything in my checklist accomplished so I’m ready to celebrate it! Now, I’m done wrapping all the gifts that I want to share to family and friends this Christmas season. It makes me happy to spend time shopping for gifts and wrapping them with beautiful christmas wrappers and finally send them to kids and special members of the family… it brings joy to my heart and makes my christmas complete.
Aside from gifts which some of them I acquire a month before Christmas, I also make it a point to prepare and complete all the stuffs, ingredients, etc… for “noche buena” a week before Christmas. I wanted to avail of the “Mall Sales Promo” which it usually runs 2 days before Christmas but I just can’t take too much of the holiday rush that sometimes will spend almost the whole day in the malls.
Home Christmas decors are also part of my preparations… the house needs to be in a Christmas atmosphere so family members and friends who come to visit for Christmas feels the spirit of the occasion. But most of all the big preparation that is found at the last of my checklist is “myself”, did I prepare myself to be worthy of celebrating the commemoration of Christ’s birthday? How did I prepare myself?
Well, I know I’m not doing a great job in preparing myself yet… but at least I believe that this is the best I can give as my presents to the celebrant… and that is to create a ripple of generosity this Christmas.
A Happy Christmas to all!
