In the present day is Christmas Day, and I’m notably grateful. We all the time regarded ahead to Christmas as youngsters as a result of my mother and father would purchase new garments and footwear for my siblings, and my mom’s cooking was all the time wonderful. Every time I discuss my mother’s cooking, it is not simply because she’s my mother; she’s a talented cook dinner. Throughout household events, everybody needs her to steer or supervise the cooking. My mother is blessed with the present of cooking.
She would put together scrumptious meals, and we’d take pleasure in them as a household. We might stroll across the neighborhood to showcase our Christmas garments and generally obtain cash items. Identical to folks have a good time Halloween, that is how we have a good time Christmas—going round and gathering items. It is humorous to consider it now, however I really like these reminiscences. Individuals would go to one another’s homes and eat collectively. My mother normally prepares takeaway packs for anybody who visits us. I liked Christmas again then, however as I grew up and moved overseas, it wasn’t the identical. There have been days I’d simply sleep all day throughout Christmas, like immediately, after I was at dwelling on the sofa feeling weak from the flu and cough.
I turned on the music after I took my bathe, made the normal Nigerian coconut rice, and fried some plantains. I assume I already found out my day for one more Christmas at dwelling alone. Grownup life is loopy. Lol, all my buddies are in numerous nations as a result of battle.
So, what about you? What are you doing for Christmas? Are you having a loud Christmas or a silent Christmas, similar to me? Or what did you do for Christmas? Let me know within the remark part under. Have a gorgeous Christmas. Jesus is the rationale for the season.
