It’s the most wonderful time of the year!


Allison Bastida, 10th Grade Reporter

Have you ever dreamed of waking up to a snowstorm with the fire roasting? You hear the coffee cups clinking downstairs, and the family members start to arrive. The thoughts come back and you realize, its Christmas! You run down stairs and see so many different color wrapping paper under the Christmas tree. You see a big box with your name on it. You are excited to open it and its just all an amazing feeling. When you go outside you see the Christmas lights all over your neighborhood filling the air with Christmas spirit. Those were such good days and memories that every kid loves to experience.

Now, the Christmas spirit has slowly went down. A lot of neighborhoods don’t decorate their homes into a winter wonderland for the eyes of the public. Everyone is worried mainly on the material gifts instead of the most important part of Christmas. The birth of our Savior. We have forgotten to praise Him for He is the one who saved us. Yes, it’s amazing to spend time with family and open presents, but to praise the real reason of Christmas is more important. Can we all work together to bring the Christmas spirit back? We need to go back to the days where everyone was eager for the holidays to arrive!
