What Christmas Means to Me


Matthew Neus, Author

When thinking about Christmas, you think of buying and receiving gifts for everyone that is meaningful in your life. But what if Christmas doesn’t have to be about spending money on your loved ones, but spending time with your loved ones. For me, one of my favorite things to do over the holiday break is watching Christmas movies with my family. I don’t get to spend a lot of time with my family during school due to school work and work so it’s nice to spend time with my loved ones over break.

Another tradition me and my family like to do over break is to go to Hershey Park to celebrate the holidays. We spend the whole day up at Hershey Park and celebrate the holidays by looking at the Christmas lights and spending time together. 


For me, Christmas is all about spending time with my loved ones. I would rather be able to spend time with my family than open presents like most do. Christmas is about coming together and spreading joy for everybody during the stressful holiday period.
