  3. Our entire family abandoned the Christmas Crazies about 6 years ago.
    The whole holiday is now about who gets to be with each other.
    It has become such a peaceful season for us.Family is more important than "stuff"

  4. What a great video. Thanks for sharing it!
    Stuff only makes us feel good momentarily. The feeling of Giving really lasts!

  6. Love this. Saw it last year on another blog. Wouldn't it be lovely to see it on everyone's this year?
    Except that I cannot figure out how to post video. My tech skills have gaps.

  8. So true. I am so for quality, not quantity. I grew up in a home where we did not give presents for the holidays. Now we pick one name out of a whatever and buy that person something that they would not normally treat themselves to. Much less stress, waste, and is truly appreciated.

  9. My children are grown...our Christmas has really become more simple. I can say that now, cause I haven't got grand babies. So, I can't make any promises for the future when they're born, especially when they're circling the toys in the Christmas Wishbook.
    I do believe in Quality and not quantity first and foremost.


    What happened to giving individual attention to each holiday. Pretty soon it's just going to be...Halloweenthanksgivingchristmas DAY!!! I could so relate to your (previous) post about enjoying celebrating each holiday separately!
    When the retailers put Christmas out at Halloween, theres no excitement of anticipation for whats to come. It's like opening a gift 3 months before the special occasion before the guests, cake and food has arrived.


    Sweet wishes,
