While the holiday season is coming up it is always important for us to remind ourselves of the true meaning of the celebrations. We can get so caught up in the chaos of preparing for them that we can forget how important it is to just enjoy the special moments we are spending with our family and friends.

Being away at college has made me cherish the holiday season even more. It is so difficult to be away from my family that the holiday break is even more special to me. That is why I do not take coming home for granted and I always want to spend as much time as possible with my family.

It is important to remember that things such as gifts and food are of little importance when it comes to just being around family. For those of us who are blessed and lucky enough to celebrate the holidays with our family, remember never to take it for granted. Cherish it for as long as you can.

While you are home at break, don't forget about your family just because you haven't seen your high school friends in a while. In the end, trust me, you will be happier you chose to stay in and watch movies with your family than go out with friends.

Cherish every moment you have and take nothing for granted. Do not get wrapped up in what isn't as important. This year enjoy the holiday with your family.
