My Favorite Christmas Movies

Hey everyone,

I noticed on social media that people are sharing what their favorite Christmas movies are.

Most people have one Christmas movie they have to see each year.

I have several movies that I like seeing during the Christmas season.

Here they are:

  • A Charlie Brown Christmas
  • A Christmas Story
  • Christmas Vacation
  • How The Grinch Stole Christmas (cartoon)
  • Home Alone 1 and 2
  • Christmas with the Kranks
  • Scrooged

I like these movies because they are funny and give moral lessons.

I either find them on TV somewhere or watch them with my family on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

Please share with me your favorite Christmas movies.

Thank You and Have A Great Day,

It’s Better To Give Than To Receive

Hey everyone,

This Christmas season has got me thinking about something.

Growing up as a kid, I was the kid that liked the receive things but didn’t like giving things to others.

I was the kid that wanted a lot of presents to open Christmas morning.

As I got older, I started getting less and less on Christmas.

A verse in Acts caught my attention on this subject.

Acts 20:35 (KJV) says, “It is more blessed to give than to receive.”

Through this verse, it’s more beneficial of me to give to others than to receive.

Jesus gave up his life on Earth so we can have a relationship with God.

There are people that need things that I can give to them (that I take for granted).

Recently, I have learned that it’s more important to help others that need something than wanting things that I don’t need.

However, I’m doing as much as I should be doing.

How can I be doing better at this?

  • Giving money each month to certain organizations I’m passionate about (e.g. feeding the hungry).
  • Volunteering at certain organizations and through church ministries.
  • Giving items I don’t need to other people that need them.
  • Helping others out that need my help.
  • Sharing my experiences with other people that are going through similar situations.

Please let me know how I can be better at giving.

Thank You and God Bless You,

Millennial Buddy

Why I Celebrate Christmas

Hey everyone,

As we all know, the Christmas season is here.

Parties; family get-togethers; shopping and wrapping gifts; busy stores; cooking and baking; cleaning; eating; Christmas shows, movies, and specials on TV; decorating the house; special events going on at church; Christmas music playing everywhere; caroling; traveling; giving and helping needy families.

As you have noticed, a lot is going on this time of year.

It made me realize something.

Why am I celebrating a holiday that is stressful and chaotic?

To me, I do it to honor the birth of Jesus.

He is the one that God sent from Heaven to live a sinless life to die on the cross and rise on the third day, so that I can have eternal life with God.

Jesus paid for my sins (that I could not do on my own).

I celebrate Christmas to appreciate what Jesus has done in my life and thank God for his birth.

It’s not about presents, get-togethers, and decorations.

This time is meant to honor what God and Jesus did for me.

I didn’t deserve to have eternal life with God.

But God, thought me worthy of it through his son Jesus.

I have to remember that throughout the season or I won’t be appreciative of this holiday.

Please let me know what you think about Christmas.

Thank You and God Bless You,

Millennial Buddy

How I Plan on Saving Money on Christmas This Year

Hey everyone,

As we all know, it’s time to start to shopping for Christmas stuff (if you celebrate that holiday).

However, Christmas presents can put a dent in anyone’s bank account (if they are not careful).

This leads to the next question.

How will I save money on Christmas without going broke or in credit card debt?

  • Using money out of a sinking fund I set up a few months ago for Christmas gifts.
  • Giving major gifts only to very important people in my life (e.g. family members).
  • Making bags of treats for other important people in my life (e.g. church family members).
  • Setting a limit on how much I can spend on gifts for each person.
  • Using money I have saved up in my automobile sinking fund for gas needed to travel.
  • Using money I have budgeted in my giving category to buy food for needy families this Christmas.
  • Using cards and decorations I bought over the past several years.
  • Creating food that isn’t expensive for get togethers.

After Christmas, I will share with you all how I did for Christmas this year.

Please share with me any ideas you have on how I can save money for Christmas.

Thank You and Have A Great Week,

Millennial Buddy
