As the snowflakes continue to fall, we all know that the holiday season is approaching us. With that being said, we are also entering the “season of giving.”

I would like to challenge others this year to “give a gift that counts.” Here are a few things to consider while preparing your lists:

christmastreeIf each one of us would show our Christmas thought for those we love by some simple gifts, which, in the aggregate, would be no burden, there could be no dreading of the beautiful holiday time by anybody.

christmastreeAt Christmas, it’s customary to give something to the people in our lives who perform services for us during the year. Etiquette doesn’t require you to give a gift, but you can give a small token of appreciation if you choose.

christmastreeRemember that it is not the value of what is given to be considered; it is the friendly thought that counts.

christmastreeThis holiday season, regardless of our cultural or religious background, we can all be thankful for what we have and give to those that are less fortunate than ourselves
in any way we can.

May Peace be your gift at Christmas and your blessing all year through!

“ To your enemy, forgiveness. To an opponent, tolerance. To a friend, your heart. To a customer, service. To all, charity. To every child, a good example. To yourself, respect.” – Oren Arnold
