Inspiration Wednesday

This inspiration is from Debbie. “Here's a great alternative that will not only spread the generosity of the holiday season, but it will redefine Christmas. Replace meaningless gifts by giving donations to your recipients' favorite charities (You can even request others do the same for you. It's definitely a better idea than standing in the "Returns" line on December 26.) And, Redefine-Christmas.org makes it easy to do.”

Redefine-Christmas.org states, "It's not about reinventing the holiday. It's about changing the way we look at gift giving and receiving. It's taking money we usually spend on obligatory gifts with little meaning, and creating gifts of charity that give in multiple ways, to the receiver, the giver, and people who truly need."

This year, my siblings, my mother, close family friends, and I agreed to forgo gift exchanges. Instead of presents, I requested their “presence” for a holiday feast and festivities. After all, isn’t the purpose of this holiday season about getting together and remembering why we all here in the first place?

What gift giving changes did you make this year? Or, did you stay with your tried and true?
