Tis the countdown to Christmas and the mad dash at stores begins! List making, cyber sales, discount codes…they are all ingredients we anticipate after Thanksgiving each year!

What’s it all about?

And though shopping begins as a thoughtful process, it often escalates into financial extension and obligatory exchanges. Put quite simply, gift giving, the true meaning of Christmas, is ironically often lost. So I would love to challenge us this Christmas season to give gifts of love and grace. Maybe they don’t even come wrapped in packages with strings. It could be a handmade coupon to shovel a neighbor’s drive or time over coffee with a treasured friend. Packages are wonderful and they are part of the St. Nicholas and Santa Claus legacy.

But, the greatest gift came over 2,000 years ago wrapped up and laying in a manger. That, my friends, is the true meaning of Christmas gift giving!

(and if you do shop, please support small and handmade businesses).
