What is the Christmas season all about?

Posted on

As part of our video for our Holiday Concert, we asked this question as a class. What is Christmas all about? We wanted to really think hard about Christmas and figure out what’s the most important aspect of it to us. In the end, we found that it really isn’t about the presents when it comes down to it. It’s actually more about traditions, family, friends, and the spirit of giving. When our video is posted later today you will get to see our thinking, but until then, I’ve asked the students to post their ideas below.

 

Merry Christmas everyone !

    I think Christmas is about sharing with the less fortunate because there’s people in the world who are poor and cannot afford a house for their safety.
    The second reason I think Christmas is about sharing is because some people out in the world cannot afford presents for their family and friends to share Christmas spirit with others. By going and finding people and sharing by giving them some money to help them get gifts for their family we can show Christmas spirit.
    The last reason I think Christmas is about sharing is because there’s people who have family who cannot get a good enough job for the money to afford heat and to afford groceries for their family to eat. They could live a happy life with their family if we help them find a good job to help get money for their family.

    Christmas is about spending time with your family. It’s about giving presents to your family and friends.

    Also, it’s about going Christmas shopping. Christmas shopping with your family to decorate your house and buy presents for everyone.

    Lastly, it’s about going somewhere with your family like a car, bus ride. It is about visiting family like your grandma, grandpa.

    Christmas is all about speeding time with your family. When you open your presents on Christmas your parents are there and you spend time together.
    Also, when you eat supper you eat altogether.
    Lastly, you have time off from your jobs and school so you can both spend time together.

    Christmas is about giving not getting. Because some people don’t get gifts for Christmas and maybe they don’t celebrate Christmas.

    Another reason why I think Christmas is about giving is because it makes people happy. They get to spend time with their family and friends.

    My last reason why I think Christmas is about giving. Because it feels good to give other people gifts. Not everyone gets gifts so by giving we help others.

    I think Christmas is about giving not getting. I think this because you get to see children laugh and smile when they open their gifts. Then when their parents see the kids smiling and they feel happy.
    Also don’t be greedy because there are people less fortunate Therefore we need to give to them.
    The story of Santa Claus is about giving. It was never about getting.

    Christmas is about having fun with family, watching movies, and playing games.
    Also, it comes one time a year and with snow.
    Your family and friends have lots of fun games to play like
    snowball fights outside.

    I think Christmas is about giving and being thankful. I think this because giving makes people happy and it makes the giver feel good. Also when you give your making the person you gave something to feel good.
    Another reason is, its nice to spend time with your family while you sit around the Christmas tree and open your presents.
    Lastly some people don’t get to have Christmas and it helps those who are less fortunate when you donate to the salvation army.

    I think Christmas is giving friends and family hope, joy and laughter.

    I think Christmas is about helping friends and family when they fall down or when there get hurt.

    I think Christmas is about making people happy all day so they are not mad or in a bad mood.
