The reason for my drawing is: I grew up in a big family. Christmas morning we usually start the day with the family from my mother’s side and dance around the Christmas tree, then we hand out gifts which we have raffled. In the afternoon we spend time with the family from my father’s side. In the evening we eat as a family and give each other presents. I have lived and grown up with the presence of love and unity with the family. I wish that other children also experiences the same thing as I have grown up with. Seeing the children’s joy and excitement on Christmas morning spreading joy to everyone, is the best I know.”
