For Christmas, what I like to do is make something out of love, because personally, I think buying gifts is overrated… and I have no money of my own.

Every Christmas, I like to create a gift for both my dad and mom out of love. I like to manifest a creative gift that symbolize how much I care for them and how much I appreciate getting love and free gifts. For my mother, I make things such as beanies, scarfs or DIY knick-knacks—not only with Christmas themes, but for warmth.

For my dad, I make a masculine, big replica car or signed baseballs I secretly got at our last game we went to. That is how I show love for my parents. You should try it sometime. It gets you lots of love…and gifts for the holidays.

The best part about Christmas is waking up early to see all the presents underneath the tree. My younger siblings are always the first ones to be up in the morning. They always come into my room and tell me how big the presents are.

Once I’m awake, all six of us go downstairs and try making a lot of noise so my parents will get up. Eventually, they make their way downstairs. After they get downstairs, my dad pulls out his camera and takes a lot of pictures. After he finishes with that, we hand out the presents and open them.

I like to see all their smiling faces as they see their gifts. I think Christmas is when my family is truly happy.
