Christmas shouldn't be all about the presents, like you so rightly point out. I always find the most meaning in people making the time to see each other, and showing that we care about each other - family get-togethers and catching up with old friends are the things that I enjoy the most.
In my immediate family we always spend at least one day together, have a special meal, then play a few games (the ones that only ever get played at Christmas!) and have a bit of fun - these are usually my best memories of Christmas.
Merry Christmas to you and yours,
all the best, Imogen.
