I can remember when I was a little girl and how exciting it was just to know that Christmas was coming! My parents divorced when I was 4yrs. old and my mom remarried a man that treated her like a dog throughout her whole marrige! He wouldn't work a real job just always little side jobs to put alittle money in his pocket while she held 2 jobs and worked her self to death to pay all the bills and provide for me and my younger sister! Ever year when Christmas came I knew that we wouldn't get much and I remember so many yrs. I would say is that all we got! She would always day it was the best I could do with tears in her eyes! It wasn't until I got older that I relized it was the best she could do! I lost my mother to congested heart faliure in 09! 3 months latter I lost my brother on my youngest sons birthday! My mother was my best friend and when she past I lost my mind and didn't know what to do,how to live or want to live! She would always tell me every year at Christmas its not the gift u receive or how much u get...its about Jesus Christ who gave his life for all so we could have eternal life if only we believe! Just last Christmas I remembered her saying that as if she was sitting right beside me! I then got down on my knees and began to pray with tears feeling my eyes I ask God to forgive me and for misunderstanding the reason for Christmas! Jesus is the reason for Christmas and I am so ready for it to come this year so I can tell him HAPPY BIRTHDAY and thank hiim four my 4 beautiful children and all he has done for me! There are some many things that ppl. take for granted and I'm the first to admit the things I have took for granted but if you have a family or not you are never alone on Christmas because God is always there and he knows all! Thank You Jesus for saving my soul and for my family and all you do that sometimes I don't reconize! I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas and truely remembers the reason for this holiday and may the good lord bless you all and fill your hearts with joy unspeakable and full of glory and peace! MERRY CHRISTMAS**********

I'm might have a lot growing either. Christmas isn't about gifts anyway. It's Jesus birthday we need to start teach are kids that. I don't have any kids but I do have nieces. I buy for them an other peoples kids Christmas to. Everyone should help each other have a good Christmas.

My Christmas punch always gets me in the Christmas spirit. 1 Mountain Dew, quart of orange juice, quart of pineapple juice and 1 quart of my famous lemonade moonshine. Happy, Happy, happy!
