Christmas is a time for family celebrations

Next Thursday is one of the greatest days of the year.

It’s a day where parents get to see their children’s excitement, as they run out to the Christmas tree and open presents.

It’s a time for families to come together and a chance to see people you haven’t seen or touched base with all year.

It’s a great chance to have parties, enjoy some family time and celebrate a great time of year.

But it’s also a time of giving. It’s a time to remember those who are less fortunate and can’t afford to have a great Christmas.

Giving money and other things is a great way to help. There are places that will accept donations of various items like food, toys for children, coats and others to help the needy.

Those who can afford to provide for ourselves are fortunate, and we should go out of our way to help others.

It’s all about working together to help everyone have a great and memorable holiday season.

So from all of us at the Daily News, we wish everyone a Merry Christmas, a Happy New Year, and a safe holiday season.
