Christmas is a time of cheer, opening presents, family, and good food. For my sister, the presents and family are the best parts of Christmas for her. But for me....
Christmas is tough.
So much death has happened in our family, during Christmas time, my great grandpa died on Christmas day 2014 and my Nana, grandma, died December 08, 2017.
For my mom, dad, and Melody, I have to decide for myself that I have to be merry for them on Christmas.
When one or two of us are merry and having fun, then it makes the rest of us happy. When a family is merry on Christmas, it makes the joyous season even better.
So I have learned from my own personal experience, that being a merry family on Christmas is important for a joyous season, and if we ever feel like no friends can makes us feel better, family is there for us and that we can get through it together.
