What Christmas really means to me is giving to others. I enjoy making others feel happy. I like knowing that I have made others feel joy. I am happy that I get to put a smile on the faces of those I love and care about. This year, I enjoy being a member of the drama club, playing volleyball at our rec center, and being in honor band. Although I am spending more time with new friends, Christmas makes me appreciate having the time to come together with my family.
