I didn’t want anything else but this one thing for Christmas. I was having fun in the snow till I was getting cold, so I went back in. Each day it was cold outside. It kept getting closer and closer to Christmas. I couldn’t wait to see what I was going to get.
It removes original sin that was imprinted on our soul from Adam and Eve, and removes the sins we commit. Baptism gives us remission of our sins that we commit both here on earth, and in purgatory. We are granted the gift of sanctifying grace from grace, and allowed to participate in the other sacraments to grow our grace. Finally, not only do we become part of the Catholic Church, but a part of Christ (The Sacrament). As a baptized Catholic, our call is to invite others into the Catholic Church and to preach God’s word.
Everybody looks forward to holidays—spanning from Christmas, the jolly time of year when the world nostalgically envisions snow descending upon the fallow earth, to Halloween, the tenebrous time where people delight in costumes and impetuously chanting, “Trick or treat!” But, does the thought ever cross our minds: “how did these holidays come about?” or, “why do we celebrate this day?” Although research shows that many of the festivals include Puritan traditions, over time they fell victim to corrupt, pagan practices,—ranging from the cute but misguided efforts of Easter to the nefarious elements of Halloween. Do reasons to still feel joyful and happy when the holidays come around remain? I believe so, but only with caution and a greater
You can also decorate it differently depending on the way you interpret it or certain things that you use for your religion. We believe in god so we celebrate Christmas as the day that Jesus was born. Every Sunday we go to church. Before every meal we pray and also when we are asking god for forgiveness or to help with with something that is going on in are life. Every year my family and I go out to William’s Tree Farm and cut a tree down are self and then we decorate it.
Is this really Christmas? For many people, Christmas is a time of sorrow. They don't have the extra money to buy presents for their children, family, and friends. Many are saddened at Christmastime when they think of their loved ones who will not be able to come home for various reasons. Turkey dinners may be only a wish and not a reality for some.
As a younger child, I felt like being Jewish was nothing out of the ordinary. I attended a Jewish preschool and grew up in a fairly Jewish area where the people around me were familiar with Jewish customs and traditions, even if they, themselves were not Jewish. For the most part, wherever there were Christmas decorations on display, there were Hanukkah decorations as well.

Starting in September, stores are flooded with all things Christmas.
TS: Christmas is the best time of the year because of the main, real reason Jesus’ birth. CD: Jesus’ birth is so significant to me because it reminds me of all He has done for me in my life.

I go get up my Mother and brother, and bolt into the hallway. We have this tradition that we always take pictures in the long wooden hallway me and my brother hate it but it is fun sometimes.We zoom into the living room, and I see the presents under the Christmas tree I hear the crackling of the fireplace, and I smell the sausage balls in the oven. We always start with the stocking first. I now owned so many gum packets it is unreal, I believe I 15 packs of gum, as you can tell I love gum. Then we moved on to the presents that “Santa” gave us.
This is why I love Jesus. I know that when I have one of those days or need someone to talk to I know I can always go to him to talk about anything. When I tell him my problems he will do what is best for me. Jesus is in all of us in some way or another. There are some people that don’t see Jesus and live a life that is
