- Christmas comes around once each year but there is a lot to do before Christmas Day. Christmas Day is December 25th and usually people start counting down the days till Christmas starting on December 1st. Of course, my family is different.

On December 24, I, my husband, and our four children traditionally arrive mid-morning at the home of my in-laws to celebrate Christmas with them. The format of the visit rarely changes from year to year, and there is comfort in the consistency and expectation in the well-loved traditions experienced in their home.

- Someone had flipped the calendar; it read December 1962 - Advent Season, my favorite time of the year. In America they called it Christmas season. I noticed the entire neighborhood, including my in-laws, busied themselves with putting strings of electrical lights on their houses and front yards trees. Some had lit up statues of a jolly Santa Claus, reindeer, or a snowman placed under trees or by the front door. After dark, the illuminated houses and yards gave a feeling of a supernal place....

- Call for Change: Dickens’ Attempt to Improve Society, and Walt Disney’s Subversion Thereof In a time in which the significance of Christmas gradually started to change, Charles Dickens, in accordance with these changes, wrote a Christmas tale: A Christmas Carol. The novella was published six days in advance of the Christmas celebrations of 1843; it was sold out three days later. Although a socially engaged narrative, Dickens’ work is not occupied with trivialities such as the introduction of Christmas cards; instead A Christmas Carol focuses on the transforming beliefs and values within society and endeavours to contribute to these changes....

- The clattering of pots and pans mixed with the sound of frantic instruction calling and family bickering wakes me up. I slowly get up, noting its only eight o’ clock in the morning and walk towards the stairs to leave the basement, being careful not to step on any one of the 15 cousins sleeping down there as well. As I open the door and walk up the stairs it is as if I’m in a different place.The therapeutic chaos of the adults signifies the start of our holiday season. There is christmas music blasting, some family cleaning the house, others decorating, others cooking; tonight is the highly anticipated annual Metro Italian Christmas Eve dinner, hosted at one of my aunts and there is so much...

- We’ve all found ourselves tied up in one way or another: too much schoolwork, too many activities, friends demanding our time. Well, no matter how you’ve found yourself tied up, we’ve all found ourselves tied to one mountain, some for as many as 13 years. Though confined, we all have managed to wiggle around in our bonds to the hill and create other long-lasting ties. We’ve been engaged from the start, ever since learning to tie our shoes in elementary, tying those blue and black shoes that everyone had to wear.... [tags: Graduation Speech, Commencement Address]

- Christmas is a special time of year that deserves to be remembered for its true meaning. Every year, Christmas becomes more and more commercialized and society forgets the origin of Christmas. It was not started with cookies, toys, and a fat man that delivers them, but instead it started with a humble inn where our Savior was born. The definition of Christmas is “a holiday on December 25 celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ.” Nowhere in that definition does it say anything about the outrageous pressure society has set on consumers to buy, buy, buy during the Christmas season....

- Christmas was always a big event in our family. We always spent Christmas Eve with my father's family and Christmas Day with my mom's. There was always a lot of food and many gifts, but for the first four or five years of my life, I had no clue what we were celebrating. I really don't think I cared too much, being a young child caught up in all the excitement. And I had something to call it. Christmas. That's all I really needed until I stumbled upon a Christmas special on television entitled A Charlie Brown Christmas.... [tags: Personal Narrative, Essay About Myself, 2014]
