It isn’t too soon to think about Christmas


Christmas should be the most wonderful time of the year when we enjoy beautiful decorations and delicious food with our family and friends, and it is a time for giving.

This is not a time for stress; make your plans now for a festive but practical approach so you can enjoy the holiday as it should be enjoyed.

First, make two lists: a “gift” list and a “to-do” list.

On your to-do list, make a note to talk to the people in your office, Sunday school class, club, or any other group of which you are a member and customarily swap gifts or draw names.

A change that is rapidly becoming tradition is for these groups to decide not to give gifts to each other, but to buy for the disadvantaged.

If for a child, participants decide what they will bring, such as a sweater, game or toy, so the child will not end up with a dozen of the same thing. The annual Christmas party becomes a “wrapping” party.
