Gifting is my holiday fun...ramblings.....

Friday, December 21, 2012

emoticon I just love to give gifts, esp. to family, and esp to the young ones in the family. It brings me so much joy.
emoticon I admit I am a terrible wrapper and don't even care if the price tag is on. I like giving gifts of all price and don't think price matters a bit. All that matters is that it fits the right person. Who cares if it's 10 cents or 10$. Not me obviously. My favorite Christmas show is Amahl and the Night Visitors. I love the magi who brought gifts to the Christ child.
emoticon We'll go to church Christmas eve. Then our children and grandchildren will come from their churches and gather at our home for Cousin Christmas.
We have relatives in California too. Our relatives there may go to emoticon Temple or to Zoroastrian services in December. We all worship one God, and we love each other. At least one Magi was Zoroastrian..... And we share the Golden Rule idea.
emoticon emoticon And I love to see the cousins give gifts to each other. They seem to know the things teens like. I have a theme each year...like how ancestors celebrated Christmas along with food etc.
emoticon This year it'll be state of Ohio in favors, family history, foods including tomato juice the state fruit. (I happen to have items left from an occasion 2 years ago I can use up.) I'll tell them Their great grandfather was Asst. Supt. of Schools in Sandusky and grew up in Otterbein children's home in southern Ohio after his father, a minister died leaving wife and 5 children. I can spin stories about him and other Ohio relatives around Christmas fireplace. emoticon
Then the kids exchange gifts and shout "grammy, get that camera out of my face". We have the girls play their flutes of Christmas carols. And sing some too. So glad they have the privilege of knowing the songs and hymns. Wish more children and youth had these inspirational carols inside them. It does help. emoticon emoticon emoticon
