“The joining of families together in traditions, of course African traditions celebrating the food and festivities of keeping families together, also the closeness of family. Of course the birth of Jesus, but more so, just the gathering of families together and to fill those bonds that sometimes we lose.”

“I don’t celebrate Christmas and haven’t since I was about 20. Why? I don’t believe in the reasons for Christmas, plus it has become more about the commercial aspects of giving.”

“To gather with family and friends, seeing people you haven’t seen in a while and just enjoying yourself.”

“Time to celebrate my father’s birthday, a time for family and friends, it’s a joyous time, a happy time of the year. When I was growing up Christmas was a special time, it’s not as special anymore, it’s more commercial but I still like Christmas time. People just seem to be a lot happier and friendly at Christmas time.”

“It’s a time for families to get together, spend a lot of quality time with each other and a time for giving.”

“A time for getting closer to loved ones. I really don’t celebrate Christmas but I do get in touch with my loved ones. A time for giving, not just presents, I don’t believe in giving presents, I believe in giving from the heart, your love.”
