Good for you! The holidays shouldn't be all about money.
Aww, LM, what a precious story! Just goes to prove we don't need money in order to be happy.
"It comes every year and will go on forever. And along with Christmas belong the keepsakes and the customs. Those humble, everyday things a mother clings to, and ponders, like Mary in the secret spaces of her heart." ~ Marjorie Holmes, American writer
If you had no money to spend on Christmas presents, could you still have a wonderful holiday or would it be ruined?
I don't believe in spending money on Christmas presents anyway and haven't sine the boys were little.
Ohhh, Lorie, your post touched me way down deep! Your memories of past holidays were so wonderful to read and I'm sincerely glad you shared them with us. Thanks so much for reminding us what Christmas truly means! (Btw, I shop at the dollar store, too.) :)
"Christmas Eve was a night of song that wrapped itself about you like a shawl. But it warmed more than your body. It warmed your heart...filled it, too, with melody that would last forever." ~ Bess Streeter Aldrich American author
Christmas is about a lot of things and - imo - money isn't one of them.
