Thanks for these lovely statements. Gift giving as an expression of love is always good, and the Christmas tradition before it became commercialized was a good one. Maybe the best thing that might someday come from it would be to extend it to every day of the year, that is, to make every day a day of expressing love by doing good for someone. To keep it honest, the gift giving must be without a tradition of exchange, and the most grateful one is the giver, who is fortunate enough to be able to give, rather than the recipient, who, being unable to give, enables the giver to justify his good fortune.
