Christmas is a particular time. It’s a holiday with many changing moods and attitudes, and purposes throughout the years since its inception.
It was initially a Roman holiday where men would exchange gifts and have a raucous feast.
Then, as the Empire embraced Christ, they changed many of their established holidays to be more respectful of the Lord, even if it didn’t make sense.
Yes, it’s not Christ’s birthday, but it’s when we celebrate His birth and one another with peace and joy on Earth and all that. That’s what counts.
But it doesn’t count for everyone. Not everyone gets to have a merry or happy Christmas. William Wallace didn’t, and neither did his kids.
Back in 2011, his family awoke to a morning of unwrapping presents in front of a corpse.
His three children had to endure a Christmas nightmare as they were forced to be happy in front of their mother, who he’d killed the night before and positioned like a decoration to watch them as they celebrated. That’s one way to keep the family together for the holidays.
10 /10 Za'Zell Preston
Za’Zell was the mother of three, a one-time forgiver of the man who killed her. She was a loving woman with a heart full of hope and arms open with love for her man, with all his faults on display.
At her death, she was studying to help provide for her family as a professional domestic abuse consultant.
But it wasn’t all love in the Wallace-Preston home. She had a hot streak to her that came out when she drank, and that came out in William twice as bad.
9 /10 Good At The Start
The couple never officially married but cohabitated for years, during which time they had their three children. Records of their past interactions showed primarily good times.
Za’Zell was very prolific with her Facebook, posting pictures that showed a loving couple and a man proud of his children, especially of the wife carrying them.
She loved him dearly and planned on marrying him, which her sister and mother protested once she told them.
