Whatever you do this pre-holiday season, make it matter. Take the pressure off by focusing on being together or contributing to a cause — remember it’s the spirit of giving that should motivate you. Giving of yourself can mean more than a gift or money.
Visit the elderly, make something that comes from the heart or organize a community gathering. A reunion, a Christmas Carol visit — a cookie or cupcake exchange — fun times!
