Christmas is a time of year
that I have always loved;
and when I think of Christmas,
I think of huge family get-togethers,
smells of cabbage rolls, turkey and stuffing filling the house,
ham, perogies, sunshine salad,
yams, and gravy,
poppy seed and nut bread,
communion wafers with honey,
mushrooms in cream sauce,
pickles, olives, and cranberries,
trays of assorted Christmas cookies and baking,
wine, decorations, and presents,
people gathering, talking, laughing, reminiscing,
and a sense of togetherness.
Though Christmas is supposed to be about celebrating Jesus’ birthday,
it means so much more to me;
it is a time for creating memories and being with the ones you love.
Christmas, to me, = family time and good food.
What does it mean to you?
