It’s the most wonderful time of the year. At least it is supposed to be.
But there are people on this earth, who live in absolute poverty, children who starve, people who live in war zones or refugee camps, tortured animals and so on. The list is too long and too horrible to name everything. Especially during Christmas time, we like to remember that and donate. That is absolutely fantastic and honorable.
We give for the homeless, the veterans, toys for kids and animal shelters. Another fantastic and honorable thing to too.
We just tend to forget the people right next to us. The ones who will be alone or far away from their families. The ones who lost a loved one this year and must face Christmas for the first time without that person. Or the ones who suffer from depression, who want to join the laughter and fun and just can’t.
So, this year let’s do a little more. If you have a neighbor or friend who will be alone this Christmas, go over there and bring a little joy to their house.
