I believe in holidays, holidays are days that people always look forward too, whether it be a day of, getting to see family that you haven’t seen in years, or the good food.
The holidays are always a special time, people get into special moods, and do extra special things. Some people even go out of their way for other people just because it’s the holidays.
Living way up state New York far away from any of my relatives, the only time that I usually get to see my family is during the holidays because it’s a time when family comes together no matter what just to spend time with one another.
No matter how far was your family is you always want to be with them in some way, whether it is by phone or letter, or if you actually are able to spend quality time with them.
When your in that holiday spirit you tend to be just a little bit nicer for some reason, your smile is a little bit wider and your day a little bit brighter.
The holidays give me hope that people can act like they should always be acting, and maybe at some point in time people will understand that it doesn’t have to be the holiday’s season in order to be extra nice or have the urge to spend time with your family
