December is here and Holiday Season 2017 is in full swing! As you wrack your brain and slog through the malls to find the perfect gift for everyone on your gift list, please keep in mind that in the end the most cherished gifts are those that you give of yourself. And, these are the gifts that also give something to you. Sure, the latest and greatest gadget, the trendiest sweater, or the flashiest bauble will impress when they are unwrapped, but I have found that the favorite things of the holidays are those that money can’t buy.
Bake cookies with a favorite aunt. Help Grandpa with the holiday decorations. Plan a potluck for the neighborhood. When you turn these activities into annual traditions, the holiday season is transformed from crazy chaos to warm and fuzzy feelings of joyful goodwill. These memories are the true gifts of the season.
Savor the season.
