With the Thanksgiving holiday being over, Christmas is right around the corner. During Thanksgiving many people are thankful for many things. But, people also forget about being thankful during the Christmas holidays. Thanksgiving is a time for being thankful and sitting down around the table with family and friends enjoying a warm Thanksgiving meal and spending time with family and friends that some people don’t get to see very often.  Thanksgiving is also a time to give thanks to God for a plentiful harvest. Thanksgiving is also a time to help out those who are poor and the less fortunate.

Thanksgiving and Christmas are similar in many ways. Thanksgiving and Christmas both involve with giving thanks and spending time with family and friends. In 1621, the Pilgrims invited the Wampanoag Indians to a feast in Plymouth Colony to celebrate their first harvest.

Christmas is the day that we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, our lord and savor. Christmas comes from the Mass of Christ or Jesus. A Mass service is where Christians remember that Jesus died for our sins and then came back to life. Therefor, we get the name Christ-Mass, shortened to Christmas. Christmas is also a time where we can help out the people who are  less fortunate. Christmas is the time to spread joy, exchange gifts, and eat a warm meal with family and friends.

Christmas isn’t about receiving gifts and being selfish. Christmas is the spirit of giving and being thankful for all the things in our life that matter the most. Christmas is also a time to set out milk and cookies for Santa Claus and waking up Christmas morning and opening up gifts with the people you love the most. Christmas is the time to travel to people’s houses and sing Christmas carols. So, when you wake up Christmas morning you should think about all of the things you are thankful for.
