So, it's Christmas time again....and the question is...what is Christmas all about. Yes, it celebrates the birth of Jesus. Given that we live in a materialistic society, it seems that Christmas has become nothing more than a retailers dream.....buy buy buy....with the children shouting gimme gimme gimme.
We should remember that it's about GIVING, not about GETTING.....God GAVE us His Son...what's so hard about that?
I'm not saying that we shouldn't have presents under the tree or anything like that, but we need to remember what Christmas is really about.
Oh, and since this is where I give frugal tips and hints and such...if you feel the need to give presents, why not do something that costs less, but means more. Give of yourself, give some of your time, make things by hand ......cut back on your list of who you "must" give presents to. And most importantly, give to those less fortunate than yourself. Keep in mind that, no matter how bad things might seem for you, there are always others that have less than you.
