Memorable Christmas//Guest Post

Hello darling people!
I’m Rebekah, random human from Own It Fashion.
Amanda asked me to share a Christmas post with all of you, so here I am.
To me, there’s something very special about Christmas, and everything leading up to it, and
everything following it. However, some moments were more memorable, and some years more
special So here is Christmas, to me, in its most memorable forms.
The yearly family picture under the Christmas tree.
This tradition has been in my family since before I was alive and it stands out to me as one
of the most memorable parts of every Christmas.
The time I ruined it.
One year I watched my sister opening a package that had just come in the mail a few days
before Christmas. As I looked inside I was really excited to recognize the item...I shouted what
it was, and my mom, the intended recipient, was sitting in the room.
That moment is infamous in my family, and the story is told nearly every year even though I was
so young I only vaguely remember it.
Silent Night.
For as long as I can remember at the end of my Church’s Christmas Eve service we all light
candles and sing Silent Night. Every year I tear up. There’s something very beautiful about it.
Guessing gifts.
One year I picked up a bag and guessed that it was a Barbie, I opened to find a skein of yarn.
I’m not sure why, but I was very embarrassed and have never been able to get over that moment.
Therefore, Inever guess presents, for fear of embarrassment.
On Christmas Eve, drinking eggnog and hanging ornaments representing the names of Jesus
on the tree, and reading the verses that go along with each one.
One year Christmas was on a Sunday, when I realized this I was very upset to think I would
have to wait until after Church to open Christmas presents. Then I was even more disappointed
when it was decided that we wouldn’t open presents until my brother got home from where he
lived nine hours away. It was evening when he arrived and my patience has rarely been stretched
so much.
Perhaps my most memorable Christmas moment is the year I celebrated it in October.
It was early, but it was beautiful. There was an evangelistic party where we talked about our
Christmas traditions, what they mean to us, and how they lead back to Christ. Then we handed
gift bags, sang songs, and had a wonderful time.

This is Memorable Christmas to me. I hope you enjoyed this post and will comment what
Memorable Christmas means to you.
