My feelings about Christmas

By Vinton Today · December 4th, 2013
By Kellsie I am so happy that Christmas is coming and happy for it to pass because it is lots of fun but it is very hard to find gifts for your family. But I really love Christmas and getting to spend time with my family with love.

My birthday is two days before Christmas, Dec. 23. I get a lot of presents each year because my birthday is so close to Christmas. I still love Christmas because i give presents and receive presents. I have not seen my family in a long time so i really want to.
