Later on, my grandparents tell different exciting stories about their own experiences in childhood. Nowadays, I feel strongly that Christmas has lost all meaning due to commercials and the materialistic nature of society.

For them, Christmas is a time to win back the illusion of their childhood days.
I always had a long list of presents that I would ask Santa Claus for every year. Every year, my brothers and I would lie awake late into the night waiting until we knew that our parents would be asleep. As soon as we were sure that they were, we would sneak into the living room to see if Santa had been there yet. Many Christmas mornings, we woke our parents with our excitement around 3 or 4 o’clock in the morning because we couldn’t contain ourselves. The legend of Santa Claus is one that I am sure to pass on to my children.
Christmas to me is a celebration, which includes spending time with my family, decorating the entire house, inside and out, and shopping, for the people I love. Doing this with the people I love is what means the most to me. Spending Christmas with my family is very important to me. We usually gather and celebrate at my parent’s house, in East Tennessee. My husband, our three children, and myself travel from California.

A lot of people’s favorite day of the year is Christmas due to the gifts. In my family, it 's our favorite day because it is the one day of the year all eight of us are all together. My parents always managed to make Christmas a special day for us, no matter how much money they had.

But one week before the party staffs and teachers are giving gifts for each of their Manito/Manita something soft, hard, long and sweet. Until the Christmas party day came.

Our Christmas Day Rituals Christmas Day - a day my entire family looks forward to every year. To our family, it is not so much a religious celebration, but rather a celebration of family culture and togetherness. Our consumption rituals over the course of many years, has shaped our interpretation and understanding of this holiday. Although there are factors that have changed our celebration, in general, Christmas Day is a day where we get up early, dress nicely, exchange gifts, and spend the rest of the day hanging around the house together, and eat together. What makes this holiday so special to us is that my mother’s birthday falls on the same day and so, we do not only celebrate togetherness, but also the love and admiration we have for
My cousins from Nebraska always open their presents on Christmas eve because the next day they are traveling to my grandma and grandpa’s house. That night I would text my cousin to see if he got the newest Call of Duty game so we are able to play it when we see each other at our grandparents house. On Christmas eve my family would get all of our stuff lined up so when we want to leave the next day we can. I always pack my playstation three fir...
It was huge turnaround from hours beforehand when I couldn’t have cared less about the happenings of the Christmas party. “Hello Elyzsa,” Santa handed me a red and white striped candy cane, “What would you like for Christmas?” I responded,“for everyone to believe that you are real!” Then truthfully added a few moments later, “and a Playstation 3.” When I returned to school in January, no one believed my ridiculous story that I met Santa Claus in real life, although they were impressed with my new
The whole family comes together for this special holiday. We have so many traditions of that particular day. When I was a child in the month of December, every morning my father would put Christmas songs in my room.

I would wake up to this song and find my dad in the living room waiting for a dance, he would spin me what felt like endless.
Whereas, during the Christmas season, everyone wants to feel safe and happy. Families hang warm toned twinkly lights on a tree, hang stockings on the mantle, and set out figurines of reindeer and Santa. With that being said, no one would imagine both Halloween and Christmas as being scary holidays; however, Christmas can be turned frightening with one word: Santa. Children are made to believe that a large, bearded man will sneak down their chimney and deliver gifts to them while they should be sleeping. And he knows if they're sleeping and has been watching them to see if they've been naughty or nice.
