This is what I want as wellWhat do I want? For friends who are ill to become well again; for friends who have lost a loved one during this past year, especially recently, to feel comfort and solace with their loved one now being at peace even as they struggle with their new reality; for friends who have lost jobs to quickly find a new and better source and place of employment; for friends who work for the US federal government who may be affected by the looming, threatened potential shutdown to be able to manage personal and financial issues that might arise due to this if in fact the event does occur......
Oh, and for everyone to just have a nice December 25th, whether or not it is a special holiday for them.
We buy what we need and want throughout the year, so there is nothing I want for Christmas. We too celebrate Christmas as a tradition. For friends and family we do give, I’d say we give way too much, but if I am to receive it would be a gift card for a restaurant or some place like Best Buy.I don't want anything, rather I enjoy the holiday as intended in a traditional Christian way. I don't want to derail this thread since its not in the PRSI, but myself and my family embrace that holiday in that way.
I'm not looking to get gifts, I bought my wife and children gifts, and I'm looking forward to spending time with them and I guess if there's any gift I look forward too, its seeing their faces light up as they open the presents. That's what I enjoy the most. I remember my daughter after opening one of her gifts hugging me with tears in her eyes. Nothing manmade can compare to the feeling and joy from that moment.
Don't take what I said the wrong way, I'm a normal human being (well normal is questionable), and I don't wait for Christmas if I need or want something. I've "gifted" myself plenty of things in 2018 . For me though Christmas has another focus; the joy of others in my family and of course the religious significance of the day.
