Christmas has a special place in my heart. As I still believe in Santaclaus and feel one day genuine Santa will come and give me some gifts lol. Christmas comes with cold chills, snow, gifts, prayers, celebrations, sweet and family time.
Even the Christmas mass is quite special its chilled. The weather, environment, people wearing lovely clothes, sweets make them extra special. I love Christmas eve and the entire week till new year’s eve.
I am sure all of us have a lot of memories associated with different festive occasions. Also we all look forward to celebrate them right. I still have a kid in me when christmas comes. I look forward to many things like cakes, desserts, sweets, gifts, prayers and lots love!
