What makes Christmas special? – Cristal Hughes from DesignsbyCristal

1. What makes Christmas special to you?

Christmas is a time for me to enjoy the magical lights I put up every year at Thanksgiving. I actually love it all year round but the actual month of December just brings my family together even more especially since our children are in college but still enjoy the baking and special foods we made together when they were growing up.

2. How do you make Christmas as special to others?

At Christmas we try to do something for a different family or group every year. Whether it’s making a meal, sponsoring a child, or participating in the Toys For Tots program here in GA.

3. What are three words that best describe Christmas to you?

Magical, Giving, Peaceful

4. What are you most looking forward to for Christmas 2018?

My son graduates from college this semester so it’ll be extra special with a mini vacation planned to celebrate.

Christmas for me as an adult is a fantastic experience as I never had a proper one until I was a grown up – filled with fun, food, and the spirit of the season.

I love to make handmade Christmas stockings filled with goodies for folks that I know will be alone for the holidays.

3. What are three words that best describe Christmas to you?

Giving. Fellowship. Love.

4. What are you most looking forward to for Christmas 2018?

An updated home and being with people and pets I love in it.

1. What makes Christmas special to you?

I think what makes Christmas special for me is being able to spend the holiday with my family. I have a very small family, and when we were young it was easy to get everyone together … now that we’re older it seems to be harder to get everyone together during the year … but we do come together for the holidays, especially at Christmas time!

2. How do you make Christmas as special to others?

Everyone comes over to our home, and mother has always cooked our Christmas dinner … but she’s been ill, for several years, so I’ve taken over cooking Christmas dinner to keep that tradition alive!

3. What are three words that best describe Christmas to you?

Family, Food and Fun!

4. What are you most looking forward to for Christmas 2018?

My niece is expecting her second child around the end of Nov./early Dec. … so I am looking forward to the arrival of the newest family member, and also spending time with her young son (he just made 1 yr. old)!

Christmas is a time for joyful memories to be made, perhaps, a time for reflection and religion, and, sometimes, just to relax.
