From the team at Famous Parenting, we want to wish you all a very Merry Christmas. Hopefully, in one way or another you get to spend it with family – whether that be in person or virtually.
We know that many of you won’t be having the Christmas you usually would due to what is happening in the world. However, you can take comfort in the fact that you are not alone.
With much of the world in lockdown or heavily restricted due to COVID-19, having a Merry Christmas may take some ingenuity. Indeed, in this “unprecedented” time, being able to adapt and “roll with the punches” is essential.
2020 has been nothing like what many of us hoped, so Christmas this year might seem a little different. However, what may really help is to reflect on the real meaning of Christmas and what it stands for.
Christmas is one of the most important Christian and cultural holidays of the year. It is the time we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ and his being (if you are of the Christian faith).
Away from Religion it is a time to celebrate joy and love, giving and sharing. Mostly, it is a time to spend with one of the most important parts of our lives – family.
Here at Famous Parenting we celebrate parents and family all year and Christmas is no exception! For us Christmas is a time to just be with our families. It’s a time to catch up, to laugh, to celebrate and to love one another.
If you are in countries where travel is restricted and you are unable to physically reach your family, get creative. Yes, we know you are probably over Zoom and Facetime. Remember how lucky we are to have access to these. It was not that long ago that these were unheard of!
So from our family to yours we are wishing you a Merry Christmas and hope you find moments of gratitude and love throughout the day.
My name is Andrea Thompson and I’m a home based freelance writer. I’m 23 years old, married to my best friend, and mother to a wonderfully independent and opinionated 3 year old girl and step-mother to a sweet seven year old boy. I live in a tiny, little town in Kentucky, where I spend my free time fishing with my kids.
Writing has always been my passion, which I followed through high school, and for a while in college. Life happened, and once I discovered we were pregnant, I switched directions; opting for the healthcare industry because of the stability.
Finally, years later, I was in a place where I could leave the day job that never truly made me happy, and pursue my dreams. I’ve built, and am still building, my writing career from scratch. But, I’m passionate and I’m good at what I do. And, in the end, I can prove to my daughter that she can do anything she wants with this life.
