What is beautiful about the holiday season? Whether you celebrate Christmas or not, there are
many beautiful things about the holiday season. For Christians, Christmas is a celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ. Another beautiful thing about the holiday season is, It encourages everyone Christians and non-Christians to spend time with family and friends. The Holiday season is a time of giving, giving to those in need, and giving of your time by volunteering. Let's not forget about the foods of the season, giving us plenty to smile about and complain about later after you've gained a few happy pounds from eating holiday foods and sweets of the season. If it snows on Christmas day, we are in for a treat as we witness the "magic" of mother nature, offering us a picturesque scenery of winter wonder as the snow piles right before our eyes. What's beautiful about the holiday season? Taking in the beauty of the Christmas lights and decorations is also a beautiful holiday experience. Shopping for steals and deals and gift ideas for family and friends and maybe even a gift or two for yourself because you deserve it. Winter sweaters, winter fires, hot chocolate, hot coffee in flavors of the season, snowmen, movies of the season, cuddle with loved ones, or nestle in your favorite pajamas and blanket brings comfort and joy to the holiday season if you're cuddling alone. In addition to the tangible things about the Holiday season, the holiday season is a time of reflection, reminiscing, and preparation for year-end and the beginning of a new year. So if you are one of the lucky people to be reading this blog post, that means you're alive and well to see the end of another year, and that is something to celebrate no matter your religion: Merry Christmas, happy holidays, and happy Kwanzaa.
