The Holidays are Approaching

Christmas Gift Idea's

When it comes to Christmas face it, it is not what it use to be.  There use to be a time when a child was happy finding a piece of fruit in their Christmas stocking.  In today's time chances of a piece of fruit being found in a stocking would get a very strange reaction.

Gifts are given out of love.  When you give gifts, there should not be grief, stress and sadness if you do not have the money to spend on expensive gifts.  I have seen where a lot of the appreciation of giving has lost some of its magic.  For me personally that has become very sad.  Many people celebrate and see the holiday differently and however you decide to celebrate it is your call on your own personal path. 

How many times (truthfully) has someone asked you what you wanted for Christmas? I personally have a problem with that, because like I said in the opening, gifts are given from the heart and should never be out of obligation.  When I think about giving gifts, I look at the person's heart and energy.  If someone loved hiking you would never give them a pair of ballet shoes, right? You would associate that person with Nature and a love they have for it.

Here are a few ideas that could be something for you to consider.

Back in the early 1990's I wrote this short story about how I see Christmas.  The story is called:  Glorious Christmas
