Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas! Frohe Weihnachten!Frohe Weihnachten (= Merry Christmas) to everyone out there in the world.

We in Germany just got visited by Santa Clause or the „Weihnachtsmann“ and right now I’m enjoying my presents. (I need to figure out what I can do with my 500GB external HDD…). I’m aware that some of you have to wait until tomorrow, but I’m also aware that there are people in the world who are not celebrate Christmas as we do.

So let’s hold on for a minute and think about those people. People who are homeless, poor, sick, alone, far away from home…the list goes on. While people like you and I are enjoying their holidays those people would give everything to have the opportunities we have. I bet you also have/had a hard time to find a gift for a loved one because we have everything you actually need. The people I’m talking about…well, those are not able to bother with such a problem. They are happy if they got enough food/water/money to live another day.

And there are other people.

Some of them suffer from an illness which can’t be cured. They are glad that they got the chance to enjoy another Christmas with their loved ones…and what are their wishes? Most likely that either a cure is found or they won’t have to suffer much longer.

And there are other people.

Some of them are celebrating their Christmas being a soldier in a war zone. They are kept far away from their loved ones, hoping that they won’t get killed until they are due for heading back home some time next year…

I hope this article makes some sense to you as I’m just writing down my thoughts.
Be merry, but also think of other people. People not so lucky to enjoy Christmas like you do.

  1. Merry Christmas to you too! 🙂

    And as for that 500GB HDD, it’ll be filled up before you even realize it, trust me ;).

  2. so far I didn’t manage to get it filled up. And as I know me I won’t get it filled up at all.

    I tend to keep enough space left in case of an emergency.
