THE countdown for Christmas and the conclusion of December before welcoming the new year (2018) is a clear indication that time really flies even before we know it.

It is this time of the year that we are looking forward to putting into action the travel itinerary for returning to home sweet home or perhaps a holiday elsewhere or overseas from the busy and hectic work experiences throughout the year.

Everyone deserves this much needed break not just for a "distress therapy", but more significantly spending quality and meaningful time with our wonderful and awesome families back home.

Furthermore, during this period there is the usual commercialisation of Christmas by businesses, entrepreneurs and marketers.

Marketing promotions of a wide variety of product sales is evident especially with the competing low prices.

While this has become the norm of being a "materialistic" Christmas, we must never forget the true meaning of this annual occasion.

All in all, whether you are distributing gifts or not to loved ones, it is important to remember that the most invaluable gift one can give is showing true love as the holy words says (1 Corinthians 13:13), "and now these three remain: faith, hope and love but the greatest of these is love".
