I don't really want to say much. Actually, I want to say a lot, but I think this speaks for itself.

Except one tiny thing because its really artistic and junk. Frame 3 is the only one where it doesn't gradient to grey, it gradients to white.

Emotional help and understanding, kindness and empathy, plus friendship, are the best presents, not material things. That is part of the reason why I don't celebrate Christmas.

@CuteDress&TwinPonytails: The celebration of Christmas, from the biblical context, is a celebration of the birth of the greatest present given to mankind. That a god would bestow eternal forgiveness through the birth of a mortal child whose purpose is to die for us.. through the transubstantiation of immaterial to material, we are forgiven.
It can be easy to overlook this is the heavy commercialization of the season, I don't disagree. And though I am not religious myself, I can understand why it would have such a great spiritual relevance.

I celebrate Christmas, not for the theological reasons, but for the meaning behind them. The closeness of family, even family that you aren't technically part of (Joseph, the adopted father) bears resemblance to Annie's life, and to my own with my stepmother.

There is no need to throw out all the good of something simply because some of it is bad.
