    Christmas is family. It’s talking, laughing, fighting and eating. My favourite recipe is a pudding biscuit. You make vanilla pudding pre-mix (I like cottees vanilla pudding) add it to a bottom row of lattice biscuits then add a top row of lattice biscuits. Done! An easy sweet sandwhich treat.

  • karen

    Yes, Christmas is about spending time with family, but it’s much, much more, it’s also time to give to those less fortunate, to volunteer in some way either on an ongoing basis or in short bursts, to put presents for complete strangers under a Christmas trees around your area, to visit the elderly or just the lonely. Lots of people do these things at Christmas just imagine if just 1/3 of those people done the same thing all year round. The world would be a much better place. Christmas to me is NOT about expensive gifts, it’s about spreading cheer enjoying the company of friends, family and if I’m lucky put a smile on the face of a stranger. Merry Christmas to All. Karen

    Christmas always brings back childhood memories where christmas was the awaiting day of the year. First, it begun with the christmas households before decorating the christmas tree. My sister and I were the one responsible to decorate the christmas tree, following all my instructions to have the most beautiful christmas tree ever. Then came the second most exciting activity, which was christmas shopping. The day before shopping my dad will gave us money for our Christmas and New year shopping. On that day will woke up very early to have a big breakfast so that we don’t spent money on food. We will shop until my sister and I found all that were looking for and end up going home very late and tired but most importantly very happy and excited to wear all the beautiful clothes we bought. Finally christmas was here. What I remembered most about this day that makes it very special was that all my families were together, wearing beautiful clothes, laughter and happiness would filled the house. Now time to open the christmas gift, everybody will sit around the christmas tree and my dad will start with a speech, followed by the sharing of gift. My sister and I were so happy with our gifts that we would something cry out of happiness for the gifts that we were eagerly awaiting for. This is what christmas is for me, is being with your love ones as you never know if next year they will still be here. Merry Christmas everybody hohoho!
