Alrighty, so how was my Christmas? Erm... worrrkinggg. Well, I wasn't suppose to work but one of my Aussie colleague asked if I can cover the shift for her as she would like to spend Christmas with her family on Christmas night. Since I don't really have family here to celebrate with, I agreed. If my job wasn't the kind of job of providing caring service, I wouldn't want to work that night. But I seriously didn't mind working that night because how can I spend my Christmas night more meaningful than providing service to those elderly?! Plus I have to said they were especially nice on Christmas. ^.*
Here's some of my Favourites of Christmas-December:
Favourite Christmas Message:
“Often our efforts at Christmastime result in feeling stressed out, wrung out, and worn out during a time when instead we should feel the simple joys of commemorating the birth of the Babe in Behleham…What is the spirit we feel at Christmastime? It is His spirit – the Spirit of Christ.” – Pre. Thomas F. Monson
Favourite Christmas Gatherings Party:
Though I was invited to several Christmas parties (workplace, ward, friends, YSA), there were two particulars that I enjoy the most. The first one is my ward Christmas party, where we have to all dressed up in Biblical attire. Never have I ever stop feeling amazed by how good the ward or YSA activity committees are in planning activities, especially as big as this. They are just so creative which I think I would probably break down into tears half way organizing it. Aaanywho, I'm glad that I can finally wear the Baju Kurung that I brought from Malaysia 5 years ago. I think I turned out pretty good as a good Samaritan lady =)
( it's not easy since we all work shift work) to maintain this special friendships we have.

Favourite Christmas Music Video:
I've watch The Grinch ages ago (can't even remember how old I was). I don't remember much of the movie but one part that stuck in my mind was when Cindy Lou Who sang the song "Where are you Christmas". The caught my attention right away. I only recently look up the full lyrics and absolutely love it when it says "did Christmas change...or just me?"
Christmas means different to different people, cultures and belief. Some celebrate it, some don't. Some believe in Santa, some knows it is just a legend ( woops..sorry if you still believe in Santa). Christians know the celebration is about the birth of Jesus Christ. Indeed, Christmas is always the same. It is there. People change, change their attitudes towards Christmas Day based of various reasons.
