The best way to get into the Christmas spirit is to eliminate the desire to HAVE to do something nice because it is the nice thing to do, but, just doing something because you WANT to do it is more aligned with the idea of the Christmas spirit.
The concept of Christmas most likely started off with the right intention… “Let’s be kind and give some to those who are less fortunate” However, somewhere along the way the commercial need for an economic monopoloy eclipsed the good intentions of what Christmas was suppose to be.
Need less to say, all is not lost. If you are feeling particularily festive, and want to do something, not because it is of an economical or social advantage, but rather an opportunity to do something differently, then we encourage you to go out and make someone happy and expect nothing back in return.
Merry Christmas, everyone!
