A Taste of Christmas

I love Christmas. Who doesn’t? It reminds me of exuberant spirit at the family round table. Laughter is always made more meaningful by sharing wonderful stories over sumptuous dinner and luxe wine, with merry Christmas songs on the backdrop.

Elaborate parties are everywhere and holiday crazes are most expected from almost every nook of the planet, adding cheer and excitement to the grandest celebration of the year. More than that, it is a time of fatty bonuses and luxurious giveaways.

What is Christmas, anyway? For me, it’s the true celebration of life and redemption—a season of contemplation and gratitude. It’s a time to look back at my journey throughout the year and see if there were many reasons to celebrate, more things to be grateful and lucrative opportunities to count than the previous year.

I don’t savor the taste of Christmas through comfort foods and shopping sprees. Instead, I relish its essence by counting my blessings, through what I have become. How many lives have I touched? How many of my prayers were answered? Did I extend myself to those who are in need—the less fortunate, the battered and the children? Was I a worthwhile gift to others?

The taste of Christmas is a fusion of different flavors. You will only experience it by watching how our poor brethrens celebrate Christmas on their very simple homes. When you have more to consume this season, don’t hesitate to share. Christmas is merrier and more meaningful when you see them smile. Finally, don’t waste on food. There are millions of hungry people, especially children, all over the world.

Merry Christmas everyone!
