Merry Christmas, all!
The only occasion i look forward to besides my Birthday is Christmas Day! I love LOVE receiving presents (duh...who doesn't?) but i also love giving presents and making people's day! This is a time to forget all worries and show your love to the people you care for.
Christmas is not only about presents and material things though, there's an even more important reason to feel blessed on this day because it is a day we Christians celebrate Christ's birth. Not to worry, ain't here to write a lengthy post on Christianity and why you should believe it, just here to share my views on Christmas. If you don't know, i was not born in a Christian family. When i was younger and when my parents were still together, my family visited the temple weekly. Then came a day, a friend's aunt asked me to go to church with their family. Being the young and curious me, i really wanted to go and my parents were pretty okay with the idea (surprisingly, because most buddhist parents don't approve their child attending a church) cus they believed no religion teaches you bad stuff so i was given the freedom to choose what i want to believe. I am so thankful for that, because i was introduced to something really special and powerful. Someone who has kept me alive and happy till today. Someone who has made me a much kinder and less selfish person.
My journey is a Christian is FULL of ups and downs, pretty interesting and funny, maybe one day, i will write a post on it! Hehe. I am thankful for having a boyfriend, who was brought up in a Christian family and is a firm believer. I don't think i will never go back to that rocky road again. My faith is stronger than ever. :) So yes, Christmas is such a happy day for me because it's Jesus's birthday and without him, i don't think i would be able to get thru all the hard times.
I wish i can give everyone something but well, that's not possible because i'd be soooo broke. Lol. I am giving a discount code to be used on www.ohsofickle.com.sg though! Use code "OSFLOVESXMAS" at check out for 10% off!
