We should always remember that the gift of giving is not always materialistic. Jesus sacrificed for us so that we will be able to join Him in Heaven. My children and I make sure that we think about others during Christmas. It could be something as small as making sandwiches for a homeless shelter or visiting a nursing home. Our favorite thing to do is Christmas caroling with our fellow parishioners. We visit different homebound clients and the smiles on their faces are priceless!
Hawaii is a melting pot with so many cultures and religions enjoying Christmas, each bringing their unique way of praising God during this most holy time. No matter how we each celebrate Christmas, we should always remember that Christmas is all about Christ and we are celebrating His life.
