Friendship at Christmas

Christmas is a time where we are suppose to give thanks for the things in our life. Christmas isn’t about all the presents or the things we want. Its about appreciation for the things that we are lucky enough to have and the family and friends that are in our lives. So at Christmas friendship is very important and showing those friends that you are thankful for them is important too because it makes them feel special and shows that you really care about them.


Cindy Lou Who from the movie How the Grinch Stole Christmas is one of the only ones in the movie who thinks that Christmas isn’t all about presents. She sees that Christmas is about being thankful and that the Grinch just needs a friend, someone who will be nice to him and make him feel appreciated.

“But The Book of Who says this too: ‘No matter how different a Who may appear, he will always be welcome with holiday cheer.”


Winter Night

               I shake off all of my cold wet clothes as I step inside my warm house. The smell of hot cider engulfs me and my cheeks turn rosy red after being outside in the snow for so long. I walk up my stairs eager to change into dry clothes and I hang my coat by the fireplace. I sprint to my room and throw on comfy sweats and fuzzy socks and wrap myself in a fleece blanket. With my cat at my heels, I finally curl up in the corner of my couch and my mom brings me some warm cider to sip and soothe my throat. The Polar Express is playing on the t.v., and the flames in the fireplace heat up the room and my body temperature begins to rise. The twinkly Christmas lights reflect off the window, and they blend in with the stars in the night sky.

The scene recreated above demonstrates calm without having to directly state it. The white twinkly christmas lights creates a soft glow in the room and paired with the warmth of the fireplace, gives off a relaxing and calming feel to the atmosphere. Finally being warm after a long day in the cold winter air is soothing in itself. The sense of being cozy and safe inside the home is reassuring, relieving any negative feelings, ultimately creating a sense of calm.
