There are some themes that are constant in the celebration of Christmas, one of these is giving gifts. Honestly there are so many people in the world today who have no idea of what they are going to do for Christmas. They don’t know where their next meal is coming from or if they would have a next meal. To these people, Christmas is a day that they expect a Christmas miracle to happen. You could be someone’s Christmas miracle this holiday.
So how can we make this holiday special for others? Well let’s find out.
We sometimes think that to give, we have to have a lot. This is not true. You do not need to have a lot to give, you just have to be willing to give out of what you have. Gifts do not have to be expensive, high-fashion items. It could be basket of fruits, a new sweater or dress or perishable food items. The most important thing is that you are giving with love.
And here, I mean shelters or orphanages. Like it or not, there are lots of people in homes who do not have families to spend the holiday with. Take a few hours or minutes of your day and visit them, spend time with them. It is a way to show that they are important even in this season.
If you are unable to visit homes or are unable to give gifts in this season, you can volunteer for events that cater to people that are in need pf help during this period. There are lots of organisations, churches and individuals that hosts events like this. You could serve with them by giving out food or clothing items, talking with these people and giving them a reason to laugh even if for just a few minutes.
Some people expect Christmas miracles in the holiday season. You could be someone’s miracle, or better, be someone’s example of Jesus and the love of God.
