It's not the what... it's the how.... Christmas 2009

This year it's not about the what, it's about the how... about how I'm making Christmas. I haven't bought one present... I've bought stuff to make the presents, but not the actual present itself... this year it's more about presence... being there. Being there for our friends, our family, being there in faith. When times are hard some find it hard to get in the Christmas spirit... they find it hard because our culture has taught us that the bigger the gifts we get and give, the better... It's not Christmas, it's stressmas...  This year is about creating new memories, new traditions.... Christmas' full  of hope and happiness....instead of stress and strife... a new day, Christmas day.
