Holiday Spirit

So many people I have spoken to recently are lamenting their lack of Christmas spirit.  Even folks who usually love all of the preparations and lead-in to Christmas feel…nothing.  I feel the same way.  It’s still early, I know.  Time and a viewing of Rudolph and a Charlie Brown Christmas can change that overnight.

But how about this:  Let’s go outside of our normal routine and give of ourselves this year.  Volunteer in a soup kitchen.  Visit a nursing home.  Wrap gifts for the needy.  Contribute to a coat drive.  Just get out of our comfort zones and try something different.  Make it closer to home.  Give a caregiver the night off, a night out.  Babysit for a young mother.

Let’s not wait for the spirit to come to us.  Let’s bring it to someone else.
