It is a time of love, gratitude, and celebration, and there is no better way to embrace the holiday spirit than by sharing it with others.

As the Christmas season approaches, the excitement and anticipation grows, as people start planning their celebrations and thinking about the special ways they can make the holiday even more meaningful. So we the yearbook staff went around the school asking students and staff questions about the upcoming holidays.

For some, this might mean decorating their homes with sparkling lights and festive wreaths, baking cookies and other sweet treats, or singing carols with friends and family. For others, it might mean volunteering at a soup kitchen or sending warm wishes and gifts to those in need.

What’s one thing you want for Christmas? “Hey Dudes, its a shoe,” teacher Sean LaForge said.

No matter how it is celebrated, Christmas is a time to come together and spread joy and cheer.

So let us embrace the joys of Christmas and spread them far and wide, knowing that this special time of year brings us all a little closer together and fills our hearts with warmth and happiness.
