Memory Lane Monday button

I arrived here in the US in 2007 but it was only in 2008 when we really put a Christmas and decorated the place to have some spirit of Christmas. Like some people say, Christmas is for children, and nativity. Christmas is about sharing, caring, loving and a celebration of life. Each one of us has its own definition of Christmas. The most common thing we do on Christmas is sharing in the form of gift giving. This week theme for this meme is Christmas Presents. I haven’t send any presents to my family back home because I’d rather send money for them to be able to buy what they want. And besides, it’s too expensive for us to send packages and I’m kind of paranoid with out post office back home.

As for my family here, husband and I started sending Christmas presents in 2008. Our first year of marriage was tough and we did not have anything to buy presents back then. We also send Christmas cards to few of our closest friends. Nonetheless, our family here are the ones very generous enough to send presents to the kids.
