As we approach Christmas and New Year it can be helpful to remember that there is no one perfect way to celebrate. There are many ways and what is most important is that the day is meaningful for you.
A meaningful day can be one spent quietly listening to the sounds of nature and relaxing to your favourite music or movie. It can also be spending time with friends and loved ones. What is most important is that the day is meaningful.
Some favourite memories of Christmas is as a child excitedly feeling all of the presents under the tree and then waking at first light to see whether Santa has paid us a visit. and others with orphan friends in the UK sharing a meal and mulled wine while it snowed outside. The most meaningful was spending my very first Christmas alone in the UK. That day was such a special memory because I planned it from start to finish and made it something very sacred and special.
Christmas is what we make of it not what we think we should be making of it. So with this in mind I wish you all a wonderful sacred day of peace and mindfulness.
