Due to my religion, Christmas means much more than just Santa Claus, Christmas trees, presents and parties. Instead, it is a season filled with fond childhood memories like helped putting up Christmas decorations in my home church, singing Christmas carols from home to home and the very peaceful and secured atmospehere which made me felt like I was there on the night Christ was born.
This year's Christmas is going to be an extraordinary one for me. The last time I had my Christmas with the whole family of mine was 5 years ago. I got married 2 days after the 2003 Christmas. Don't get me wrong, our family gathering is quite a frequent affair but this Christmas, everybody will be flying their way here to gather at my place. I will be the host. How can I not be well prepared? I've got to start planning for the menu now!
