When i was growing up, i never understood why i got gifts on x-mas eve. All the stories we are taught made no sense.. So years passed and every
christmas, i just grew more annoyed.. Until one x-mas i told, my mom and dad.. Isnt the most important thing that we share a whole day, and give gifts
to the one who needs it the most.. And they looked at me, thinking ive gone insane.. And i said do we really need all of this.. Cant we just give
instead of getting anything in return.. My mom a devouted Christian, i said what did Jesus Christ teach. My dad a atheist, i asked have you forgotten
what humanity means.. And then i said, i hate the x-mas we are taught to enjoy.. It feels so empty when i go home..
And the next x-mas we all stood, made food that lasted for a few days.. We went outside, and said to those we saw sitting in the winter cold.. This is
for you, merry x-mas.. A hot meal, is all i can give.. Please..
And the smile, is what to many of us have forgotten in this day and age.. And we went home, enjoyed a small meal and enjoyed the company..
