Listening to Christmas carols and browsing through photos from Christmas 2 years back—spent traveling the east coast of north america with my sister and little buddy—brings with it a sense of nostalgia.
Christmas spent overseas is really an experience—the decorations, the atmosphere, the snow. But really, what is Christmas if you don’t spend it with the ones you love most. As much as I would love to spend Christmas in some winter wonderland, I’d rather forgo all of that and spend it with my family and friends. Christmas 2 years ago was the first time my sister and I didn’t attend church. It was only then that I realised how meaningless Christmas is without celebrating the true meaning of the day—the birth of Jesus.
But before Christmas, there’s so much planned in the month of December. I seem to be busier now, than when school’s in. Nonetheless, I’m going to enjoy every bit of December before it ends. I don’t ever want December to end cos it’s the last school holiday I’ll ever have as an undergraduate.
