So once again it seems that the never ending cycle of holiday festivities is in full effect. From the holiday themed music in commercial advertising, to the gigantic and often obnoxious decorations in and outside of homes and businesses it is quite apparent. My question to the reader is: have you kept in mind the true meaning of christmas? Ofcourse it feels good to receive gifts and eat good homemade meals with your families, but keep in mind that there are those that have no new Iphone or Android. There are those without the new Air Jordans and new flatscreen televisions. I say that to simply give some a little more perspecive. This is a season to give and spread good will. Make sure to do any and everything that you can afford to. This will only benefit you in the long run and can be as simple as donating your old but well kept clothing to your local Salvation Army locations. There are also plenty of food banks in strong need of donations. Keep all of these things in mind during this very hectic season and be sure to wish someone a Merry Christmas, Happy Kwanzaa or Chanukah. You never know, this could be the highlight of their day. With all that being said, Happy Holiday's and good luck in all your endeavors of 2012.
I have a link to the charitable organization by the name of Autism Speaks. Please donate to the cause, even if it's just a dollar. Every bit counts.
