What Shall We Eat?!Diana
If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.” ~J. R. R. Tolkien This Christmas, many have little to celebrate. Let’s admit it, many have lost a lot this year; we lost people that we loved. We lost things that we loved. We lost places that we loved. I know a lot of people who lost family and friends, jobs, homes, we all lost hope at some point. I lost people that I loved, and the thought of celebrating Christmas brings an ache with it. But that does not mean I will not celebrate. I know my loved ones would want me to celebrate, they’d want me to wear a bright smile and acknowledge the spirit and melody of the season with heart. They’d want me to put on a Santa hat and spread laughter, this season only comes once a year. Let’s make the most of it. Whether you are celebrating with a grieving heart, or a cheerful heart, this is the time to embrace family and enjoy the warmth that comes with it. Krisi is here! And so are you! Alive. Inspite and despite the many odds. For that, we can afford to ‘eat’ Christmas as we give love and share hope. Kula!
