It is easy to get caught up in our own lives during the holiday season. We all have many things expected us at this time of year and these things can take over. It is important to remember how fortunate we are and that we have a responsibility to give to others.
There are a great number of charitable organizations who would appreciate any help that you can give. If you are strapped for cash, many organizations would happily have you volunteer your time or talents. If you are strapped for time, you could always make a commitment for January when things quiet down. Simple acts, such as helping a friend with child care, shoveling a neighbour's sidewalk or visiting someone who is sick, can be the embodiment of the Christmas Spirit.
