The Importance of Christmas

I absolutely love Christmas. Of all the holidays, it has to be my favorite because it has always been a great time in my life. Ever since I was a little kid I always enjoyed good smells, good food, presents and lots of fun with my family. You get to watch all kinds of Christmas movies like Home Alone and listen to Christmas music and Christmas carols. It is a time of year where you are thankful for those who have invested in your life.

You also have to find ways to give back to those who have a need. That’s why my Blanket Coverage Foundation does a Christmas event every year. We want families in our community to have a Christmas that is just as joyous as some of the ones that I have had.

Both my fiance’ Ashley and I are dedicated to serving our community and to show love and appreciation for other people. I think somewhere along the line that people are becoming less appreciative and loving. This is a small step towards showing that.

My hope for each and every one of you is that you find time for things that matter during the Christmas season. Love those who are most important to you. Give back to your community. Serve those who are in need. There’s just a little bit more time left until Christmas - make it count. Focus on what is most important.
