I LOVE Christmas.
Religious beliefs aside, Christmas means alot more than just gift exchanges, bright glittery lights, yummy food and alcohol. (I do like Christmas sales though!)
Every year, I find myself all stressed up about having to buy ‘obligatory’ Christmas gifts for family and friends. I don’t believe in gift buying for the sake of it, esp. for people I am not close to. However, not to be the grinch at parties, I often end up doing rounds of gift exchanges (mostly secret santa styled). This year, I already have 4 secret santas!
So, in the attempt to give Christmas the true meaning of “Season of giving”, here’s what I hope my secret santas would consider:-
I don’t want any more chocs (am on diet) and don’t need any more scented candles (I just bought a new bright lamp) and definitely don’t want any stuff toy (no space on my bed/ shelves), so if you are also stressing over what to get for my ‘obligatory gift’ …. please just donate in my name (my email at firstname.lastname@example.org) to any of the three Charities/ causes I truly believe in and support:-
This way, no stress for you and lots of benefits for the people and charities who really need help.
Thank you, Santas. :X
