Holiday cheer

The holiday season has become a season of commercialism in the guise of “gift giving.” I’m all for the giving spirit, but the volume of stuff that is bought and sold in the last five weeks of every year is daunting. Today, I bought gifts for several family members. But many of those gifts are donations made in their name. It feels more in the spirit of Christmas to be helping out organizations in need. Plus, my family and I don’t really need more “stuff.”
