Make sure to be thankful. When you give we have program that gives to kids. The problem is called “Operation Shoe Box Child.” Which is where we give shoe boxes filled with girl items and boy items and we mail them and they learn about Jesus. It’s also the birthday of Christ because the bible says Mary gave birth to a boy called Jesus. He was God’s son, he was born on December 25th.

What Christmas means to me is …Family food and gifts. Do you like Christmas? If not that’s okay. However, you shouldn’t ruin it for others. Some people believe Santa isn’t real but their incorrect. What I do for Christmas is first wake up….zzzz….and open my gifts. After that it’s time to get dressed and go to my Nana’s house. What we eat is lasagna, salad, my mom’s Oreo balls and banana pudding. Then we go to my Nanny’s house we eat mac and cheese, potatoes, banana pudding, brownie cheesecake and no bake cookies.

Finally we go home. I feel like an elephant after a candy party. When I get inside and get my pajamas on I stay up for two hours to play with my stuff. I watch an hour long movie drink hot cocoa and then go to bed. Christmas is my second favorite holiday… my birthday is my first favorite holiday. This is how I spend this jolly holiday.

Jada Lyon

Christmas means to me that I get to see my family for the holidays. It also means we get to thank God for all the good he’s done for us. Christmas is a time for thanking and giving stuff too. We can make kids that have no toys happy by giving them warm cloth and food.

Aiden Childers

What Christmas means to me is a time to be with your family and friends. I have fun and feel loved and not alone. Christmas is a holiday to get presents and give presents. I love to get the Christmas tree and decorate the tree. Wrapping people’s presents makes me happy. I do not like when you have to wait to open presents. Sometime on Christmas Eve at moms and dads they let us open a small Christmas present.

Cole Cheek

What Christmas means to me is spending time with my family and getting to see my Elf on the shelf Snowflake nicknamed Peppermint. I like seeing all the places she is at. Next I like getting to see all the gifts I get. I like seeing all the Christmas lights, playing in the snow, making snowmen, making snowballs to have a snowball fight with Alyssa and Brittany. I lose most of the time, but I have fun. Also, I like putting up the Christmas tree and putting candy canes and light on it.

Samantha Hayes

What Christmas Means to me …WAIT!!

Before I say, I just want to tell you one thing. I love toys. That is not what it is all about. What do you think it is all about? I think that Christmas is about when Jesus Christ was born and, that was a very special day because everybody loves Christmas. If it was not for him we would not have holidays as we do now. We would not even have a day on this earth if it was not for him. But anyways, one of the traditions is at my nana and pappy’s. We have a birthday cake to celebrate Jesus Christ birthday. The cake is good but let’s move on. Next is presents at my nana and pappy’s. They pass out one present at a time and wait until everybody in the room has a present, and we all open them at the same time. But way early in the morning about 4:00 or 5:00 am we wake up to open Santa’s presents first. Then we open the one present my mom and dad always gets us. Then, we move on to the stockings and let me tell you they are huge. Santa mostly fills them with candy. We then all go back to bed for a little bit, then we get up about 6:00 and my mom’s side of the family all gathers at my house and we eat breakfast. I really love the part when go to my nana and pawpaw’s and we eat supper. Get this every year we have something different to eat. Not just ham. Get this last year we had these two huge subs. Well that is what I do for Christmas and one of my most favorite parts is I get to spend time with all of my family on Christmas. I would like to wish you a very merry Christmas.

Maggie Reece

What Christmas means to me

To me Christmas means that my family and I can get the tree out and decorate it. I love Christmas Eve because I get an early present before Christmas morning. On Christmas morning we play Christmas music while we open our presents. After we are done opening our gifts (if it’s snowing) we’ll go outside and play in the snow. When we get too cold we’ll go inside and get warm, and get ready to go to my grandparents’ house. While we open our presents, we snack on candy and I also get extra candy from my stocking. Finally after we open our gifts then we go home. When I get home, I play with my toys or my new video games (if I get any).

BY: Lane Royal

What Christmas means to me

Christmas means that family gets together to celebrate Jesus Christ birthday. We go to church on this special occasion to love and show appreciation. We show that we love each other and we give presents. This is just like the 3 kings did to baby Jesus when he was born. It’s a time where family and friends celebrate the holiday. It’s a time of love and not worry about presents. Lights, Christmas trees, and other stuff go up. The beauty has a sentimental feeling. I love being with my family on this special holiday. It’s full of warmth and love.

Merry Christmas!!!!

Kimberly Ruiz-Salazar

What Christmas means to me…

Hmm? To me Christmas is the time to be jolly. Christmas was when Jesus was born. I love the time to sit by a warm fire and read “Twas the Night before Christmas “. MY mischievous Elf on the Shelf, whose name is Christmas and reindeer, whose name is Snowball, come back to Elkin from the chilly North Pole. I love spending time with my family on this special holiday. I personally love this holiday because of the singing, the laughter, and the family fun. But it is also the time when Santa comes to say “Ho Ho Ho” Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night. Merry Christmas!

Christmas means giving and when Mary and Joseph had a baby named Jesus. Having time with family and friends makes me feel joyful. It’s the only day kids can have the belief of Christmas and you can’t forget about Santa Claus. Everybody can have the merry and jolly cheer of Christmas.

What Christmas means to me

Christmas to me is time with family and friends. A lot of kids think that Christmas is all about the food and presents. My grandpa always takes us to our Aunt Donnas house. Then we meet up with all of our other family members Uncles, Aunts, and cousins come too. Then we all go and have a humongous dinner made by Aunt Donna. After that, we go out and play. Then right before we leave, we open presents. I’m super thankful for my Mom and Dad, Grandma and Grandpa, all my friends and other family members. They do everything for me and my siblings on any holiday and all 365 days of every year. That’s what Christmas means to me: friends, family, and celebrating Jesus Christ’s Birthday.

Ethan Watson

To me Christmas is a sacred Sabbath day were I think people should be in a sanctuary praying. A long time ago, Jesus was born on that day. That is now known as Christmas. Christmas is a lot, but most of all you get to spend it with your whole family.

What Christmas means to me…

For me Christmas means to celebrate Jesus birthday by spending time with your family like Mary and Joseph did with Jesus when he was born. To celebrate his birthday, our church will do a Christmas play. Our family also likes to make a cake for him and all of us will gather around and blow out His candles. The last thing we do is we go to the church and sing. That is what Christmas means to me!!!

‘What Christmas Means To Me’

Christmas is a time of celebration. Why? Why would we celebrate? Because a baby was born in a manger in Bethlehem, and wrapped in swaddling clothes. Not just any baby, a perfect one, who lived for about 32 years on earth, and is my Savior. His name is Jesus. What did he do for me, and why is that a reason to celebrate? He died for me and everyone. He died a slow and painful death on a cross. We put up a star in my house to represent the star that the 3 wise men followed to find baby Jesus. We also have a family tradition that includes going to see the Christmas play at my church. I am usually an angel.

Merry Christmas!

What Christmas means to me…

Christmas to me is when Jesus was born. It is a time family when gets together. Every year we talk about the candy cane story. This is the trick of a candy cane. When you turn the candy cane upside down it is a J for Jesus. Then turn it back around it is staff that the shepherds used. The red is for Jesus blood and the white is for purity. One more thing Christmas starts with Christ. That is what Christmas means to me. It is not about the presents. It is about Jesus birthday.

Asia McGee

Christmas means to me that you’re going to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. It also means you get to spend time with your family. [Which I love]. I think Christmas is a loving holiday. Christmas is all about love. I mean love is practically in the air. The reason it’s a loving holiday is because if you love your family you can give them hugs to cheer them up. That’s what Christmas love means to me. Christmas is also a giving holiday because you are giving gifts to your family.

What Christmas means to me

Christmas time is the best time of year. The presents, Holiday songs on the radio,and Holiday cheer. I love it all but, is that what Christmas is all about? My theory about Christmas is that it’s celebrates the birth of Jesus. Yes, I do love the gifts, but some kids just think it’s about them, but you have to look deeper into Christmas to know its more than the gifts. Traditions are my favorite part of Christmas too. My favorite tradition is we go my grandma’s house to eat breakfast there. At my other grandma’s house we get together to have a big… family reunion. Christmas is the most celebrated Holiday in the world. I love it because you get to spend time with your family and friends. This paper shows what I think it’s about.

What Christmas means to me is to get together and to spend time with each other and to celebrate Jesus birthday. The best thing about Christmas is to see the look on my sister’s face when she opens her presents.

What Christmas means to me…..

Have you ever asked yourself what does Christmas mean to me? Well I have asked myself that same question and I’m going to tell you my answer. The 3 most important things that are important to me at Christmas is friends, family, and of course Jesus’s birthday. Friends because they always cheer you up when you feel down and they make everything better. Family because there is no one who knows you better than your own family. Jesus’s birthday because he is the reason you’re here he loves you he made you he saved you and me and he is your father. The other things that are fun is the presents, candy, decorations, Christmas carols, Christmas stories, hot cocoa, Christmas movies, Christmas parties, snowball fights, and Christmas plays. That’s my answer to what Christmas means to me. I hope you have a merry little Christmas and a happy new year.

What Christmas means to me

I think that Christmas is about Jesus and His birthday. I like to come together and to open presents and have joy about seeing my family. We are very lucky to even get some presents for Christmas because some kids hardly get one for Christmas. I love Christmas because my two of my brothers are in the United States Navy and sometimes they get to come home. When it is Christmas, I like to wake my brothers up and play my new video games that I got because they are so cool. I just love beating my dad and my brothers playing a game.

I love to go to church if Christmas ends up on a Sunday. After that, we go spend time with my meme and papa and my other meme and papa. I love dressing up my two dogs as Santa because they look so cute. So what Christmas means to me is family and Jesus’ birthday.

My mom makes hot cocoa, and a special dinner! If it snows, I go outside and make snow angels and snowmen! We also have a decoration of a big star that represents the star the 3 wise men followed to give the new king a 3 gifts that new king is known as Jesus! In the Christmas parade my Girl Scout troop throws candy! I love peppermint yumm… Santa fills our stockings with tiny gifts like candy. Under our beautiful Christmas tree Santa Claus puts presents with holiday wrapping, Christmas is not just about presents and Santa it is about family and celebrating Jesus birthday.

Autumn Wooten

What Christmas Means to Me

What Christmas means to me is Jesus was born. I like giving gifts and receiving gifts. I like spending time with my family and friends playing inside because it is so cold outside. When we get done opening all our gifts, me and my sister play with our toys. I love making cookies and cakes. On my cookies we have chocolate chips and M and M’s. On my cake we do different patterns on them. I love drinking hot chocolate with marshmallows in it when it is cold outside. We get out our sled and my dad pulls us with the mule. We also sled down hills in tubes. Christmas is my favorite holiday because Jesus was born and I was born, too.

Zoe Cheek

What Christmas means to me.

It means the day that Jesus was born, and the day we worship him. What I really love is that I stay all day and love my family and my mom and dad’s side of the family. What we do every year is we go to people’s houses we know are lonely and give them gifts, and sometimes they give us presents. We sometimes get our snow sleds and tie it to our Rzr Razor and build ramps to hit. Playing in the snow with my siblings is the best thing you can do. We get our RC cars if they aren’t broke and play with them in the snow. Then we snow sled till we get icicles on our fingers. Then we build a big bonfire in our yard .We have Christmas lights on our snow sleds and go at night. Then when we get done in the snow, we go on the road and drift and do donuts. Then we open presents and have a small service to worship God and Jesus

And for fun people put up decorations. Like, people put up christmas trees and lights. And churches do Christmas plays. And towns do parades for fun to celebrate. That’s what christmas means to me.

Troy Caudle

What Christmas Means To Me

To me Christmas is to give and to receive not just gifts, but also joy and happiness. Christmas is when we come together and have fun and think about others whether they’re close to you or when they’re not. On Christmas, we enjoy the happy moments in the present and not the sad ones in the past. It’s to celebrate with others in joy and thoughtfulness. To me Christmas is a happy time of year and not a gloomy one because of all the cheer and excitement coming from other people who also think Christmas is a joyful time of the year.

Ambrin White

What Christmas Means To Me

To me Christmas is when we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. It’s also when we spend time with family and when we give and receive gifts. My family has many traditions that we do at Christmas that I love like, going to my great grandma’s house for dinner on Christmas Eve, going to my Nana and Papa’s house for lunch on Christmas Day, and going to my Grandma and Pa’s house for dinner on Christmas day. Christmas is so special to me because I get to spend time with my family.

Callie Hall

What Christmas means to me.

Christmas means to me is giving, Jesus, and joy. Giving is a nice thing to do for anyone without money or having a bad day, and it was Jesus’s birth, and the 3 kings gave him gifts. Jesus is the symbol of Christmas for his birth and gives hope to Christmas. Jesus made

Christmas a miracle and makes everyone happy on any day of the year. Joy should always be on Christmas day and it make everyone joyful on Christmas.

Jakob Lewis

What Christmas Means to Me

This is what Christmas means to me. To me, Christmas means getting to spend time with all of my family and friends. Getting very happy when I open up all of my presents. Then I get to have fun eating Christmas food with all of my family. And spending time having fun on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Next putting up the big Christmas tree in my living room. Then putting on all of the ornaments.

Then about Christmas Eve. Christmas Eve is a time in the last month December when your parents give you presents instead of Santa Claus. Christmas Eve is also when I go to all of my relative’s houses and I collect all of the presents that they got for me. This is what Christmas means to me!

Tyler Spears

Christmas means I get to spend time with family that I don’t see a lot. We pray to God then we eat a lot of food. Also, sitting by the fire is a common tradition in my family. We would talk for hours upon hours about whatever comes up to talk about. Then one of us will look up at the beautiful Christmas tree and then we would talk about its beauty. Then we open presents and celebrate Christmas as a happy family.

Anna Tilley

What Christmas Means to Me

What Christmas means to me is that I think of Jesus and him being born on that day which is Christmas. I love Christmas because you feel a lot of emotions. What I feel is happy,cheerful,and excited. The reasons I feel that way is because I cannot wait to open my presents and cannot wait to see what I got from Santa Claus.

Amanda Lyons

What Christmas Means to Me

What Christmas means to me is spending time with my family and also giving to others. I love making others happy on Christmas so they can also have a good Christmas. Christmas means to me loving others. I love reading Christmas books and watching funny Christmas movies like the Grinch Who Stole Christmas. That’s my favorite Christmas movie another important part of Christmas to me is laughter all around. I also love Christmas cookies and other Christmas foods. I like giving gifts and receiving. Do you like Santa Claus?! I think Christmas is one of the most important holidays because Jesus was born and you also get to have bonding time with your family and friends. It is important to give to others on Christmas and in general because it wouldn’t be fair for everybody else to have an amazing Christmas but not them.

Leu Garcie

What Christmas Means to Me

Is that Jesus was born on Christmas. I like to give my whole family presents, and me and my mom gives cookies and milk to Santa and carrots to Santa’s reindeer. And my favorite part is checking if he ate all of the cookies. He took all of the carrots and one cookie was left. And we put a Christmas tree up and put Christmas lights up all around the house. We wake up and open Christmas presents up and play with them.

Evan Benge

Christmas mean to me that you spend time with your family. You get your special foods every year for Christmas. If you have siblings, you can go Christmas shopping for them, and they can go Christmas shopping for you. You could buy a gift for your parents if you want to. You could buy a gift for your adult sister if you have any, or you can buy one for your brother or anyone in your family.

We get to decorate a Christmas tree with beautiful ornaments. I get to give out presents and hugs to all of my friends and family. Most of the presents I give are homemade for each individual person. I love seeing everyone smile and be joyful instead of fighting. I always love thinking about how lucky we are to be free. I am always happy to think our savior, Jesus Christ, was born on Christmas. Happy Holidays!

Christmas is a holiday that me and my family just sit at home, or we go to my grandmother’s house. We all wake up at 8 in the morning. It is also a holiday that Jesus was born. My grandmother always bakes a cake, some cookies, or a pie. Sometimes we sit down and watch a movie. We always open presents before 11, and that’s what Christmas means to me.

Preston Poe

What Christmas Means to Me

It means to me it’s a time when my family gets together to celebrate. It means to be thankful for the person whose birthday was on this day. You should take time to appreciate family. You can make cards or gifts. But the most important gift to give is love. Give faith because Christmas is not about toys; it’s about getting with your family. Some people celebrate in different ways such as different cultures or some people celebrate.

Jaylee Southard

What Christmas Means to Me

To me Christmas means to have fun and spend time with family. To have fun with your new gifts. To play with friends and family. To give and receive gifts. Having fun is the key to having a good Christmas. For me tons of funny things happen on christmas. Like one time on Christmas my outside stairs were slippery and i did not know that. So when I stepped on them i slipped. Another time i was playing in the snow and slipped and I was sliding all across the yard. The last story i am going to tell is one Christmas morning and i got a metal detector and i could not use it until a couple months later. And that is what Christmas means to me.

Gage Luffman

What Christmas Means to Me……….. To me Christmas means spending time with my Dad, cousin, and friends. On Christmas morning we all wake up and eat breakfast together and we all eat really fast because we are really excited to see and open what Santa, our parents, and friends got us for Christmas. So on Christmas we have a party and we do ugly sweater contests and we just have fun and enjoy ourselves. Also we get excited about our elves on the shelf coming back! But kind of not because we have to clean up their messes and take care of them. It’s also really fun to see what they have done every morning. When my elf came back it was lying covered up in my dad’s bed. Also a few days ago my elf put toilet paper all over my room and it was so funny!

Shawna Myers

What Christmas Means to Me

Christmas means to me that it is Jesus’s birthday. It’s a day where your family gets together. Santa comes when you’re sleeping and you wake up and see all the presents and be thankful and wait until your family wakes up and open your presents. When Christmas comes around, it also means to me is that you put all the decorations. Christmas also means to me is you put up the Christmas tree. You listen to Christmas music and have fun with your family.
