Oh so true. It took us a long time to figure it out — actually when grandkids started to arrive. We went — WOAH — what are we doing? Teaching consumerism.
So we give one gift to a grandchild at Christmas. That’s it. Our kids get some money (but grandkids don’t see it). We keep things simple. Get together with everyone a weekend before Christmas.
What is special to me is the meaning of Christmas — love, Jesus, faith, friends, family.
Blessings to you this Christmas,
