The Christmas holiday season is a time for taking pictures and making videos. The parties and gatherings are ideal for capturing the goings on for posterity. If you're like my family, you probably have many photos in your albums with happy holiday fare. And anyone with kids undoubtedly has at least a few years worth of pictures with Santa.
But let us not forget the other remembrance that is the reason for this joyous season. Remembering the birth of Jesus Christ is how this holiday came about. It probably isn't even the actual time of the birth of Christ, but somewhere along the line this was the time that was designated. The fun parts are nice things to remember, but the Jesus part is why we do it.
Have a happy time during Christmas and New Years. Take lots of pictures and make lots of memories. Trade stories with one another. And if you're working on a memoir or planning to do so eventually, this might be an ideal time to do some research.
I wish you all a very Merry Christmas, a Happy New Year, and big load of good memories.
