Christmas has come and gone. I tried to keep the Christmas Spirit all year and then came up short when it rolled around again. It evened snowed before Christmas and there was still plenty on the ground on the 25th. Maybe Christmas is better off left alone and pulled out the day after Thanksgiving. Maybe it gets diluted if you try to keep it going all year. Maybe it loses some of its gloss.
Two things I did this past year that I will try to repeat:
1. Put money in a Christmas acccount every month.
2. Give to a different charity each month in addition to my church tythe.
