Please help yourselves to the following Santa Claus blinkies which my friend Layla has shared.
I like the fact that so many blogs are promoting the true meaning of Christmas this year. In other words, they do not want to contribute to the commercialism of Christ's birth day. Instead, many folks will be giving homemade gifts this year.
My brothers, sisters and I will also be doing something special for Christmas. We all mutually agreed not to spend so much money on buying gifts for one another. Instead, we have send old family videos to our one brother. He is going to create a DVD of a collection of family videos for each one of us.
Another sister has collected old family photos. She wanted to have a photo album ready for our Dad's 80th birthday on Monday. But she didn't have sufficient time to get it ready. So, instead each one of us will be receiving a copy of the album.
We also need to remember the homeless, the elderly, the lonely, the homebound and all those less fortunate than us. There are so many ways to help make their Christmas a little more brighter. I hope we do more than our share this year.
One way we start the Christmas season is on Thanksgiving. One of my good friends signs my family up to help deliver meals with the Meals on Wheels program. It is always touching and also heartbreaking to see those elderly people who grateful for a little meal and a little human contact.
So, there are some ideas that our family will doing. Let's really get into the spirit of the Christmas Season. After all, we all know that Jesus is the reason for the season.
