Christmas is quickly approaching us. Ten days away and counting. Some people have their shopping done, some have a few things left to get and others haven’t walked into a store for a gift, Oh and lets not forget the ones that are not able to get gifts this year. Hard situation but some times it’s the case. Now days money becomes tight because it goes to bills and gas and gifts during the holidays are not a necessity.
This year is hard for my family and I but as long as we have family the holidays can still be as bright without gifts as it can be with. Gifts don’t have to be material things. We have let holidays become commercialized. Sad that as families we thing that we have to give gifts to have a good time. Come on now…. that is not the case.
Break out a deck of cards and play go fish or BS or spoons. Learn a new card game for the holidays. Break out some of those old board games that are collecting dust and gather the family to enjoy some fun. Have a snowball fight if it’s a snowing. Decorate the house and enjoy singing Christmas music to get into the mood of family fun.
Lets put our glasses up and cheers to having a good Christmas and other holidays with our families with or without money! Get some laughs going this year, pull a friendly prank on someone, share or give something away to make someone happy.
Let me know how you’re preparing for the holidays or what stresses your having because it’s the holidays!
