Christmas is such a special time of year for many people. It symbolizes the birth of Jesus Christ, bringing peace and joy across our world. Christmas is also a time to reconnect with family members, whether they are close or distant relatives. Of course, this holiday brings about the stress of preparation and unpredictable family dynamics. Sometimes we’re in the company of others we only spend once a year with. Despite the unpredictability, I always find it refreshing to visit family on this day, since maintaining family connections mean so much to me.
Today Andy and I went to Christmas service in the morning, then we shared a meal with his family. His siblings spend Christmas with us, so it’s exciting to catch up with them about their lives.
In the evening, we headed to Paterson to spend time with my family. Whenever I spend time with my grandparents I value every single moment. I also marveled at how my niece is so outgoing and social with her cousins, twin girls a few months younger than she is. I talked about many things with my fanily: life, the upcoming wedding, and how my cousin in Florida is doing. I’m hopeful that he and his fiance can make it to the wedding.
I hope everyone shared a memorable Christmas with their family and loved ones!
