Thank you for this article as I feel much the same but could never have expressed it so well. I am trying to eliminate this obligatory giving of gifts to friends and family who have everything to begin with. I prepared food for the LGBT shelter in the neighborhood and contributed a grocery store gift card for one of the families my church adopted. If I can fight off this cold will visit a friend in the hospital and two others who are shut-in at home. I think this is more important and in keeping with the reason for the season. Thanks again.
