I love this time of year, but not because of the gifts, but because of the magic in the air. It is so fantastic that so many people try extra hard to be pleasant, smile, give whatever they can, and share what they have.
My philosophy has been to not be manipulated by the date, but try this every day of the year. Whenever I have a thought about someone, see something for someone I know, or see someone in need or that I can help, I do so. It does not have to be December.
Here is to loving and sharing all year round.
