Lately the true meaning of Christmas has been overlooked by the excitement of getting presents, and the idea of getting off from school. People often forget that Christmas is supposed to be about the joyous occasion of the birth of Jesus Christ. This Advent, I plan to remember the true meaning of Christmas and try get closer to God. Ways I plan to get closer to God are by continuing to go to Church every Sunday and taking part in Church activities like the Christmas play. Also I will help children at mass in lighting the Advent wreath and decorating the Jesse tree each week. I also plan to try to pray the rosary every day this Advent in honor of Mary.
