While your kids are toasty in their beds with visions of sugarplums (and that new LEGO toy) in their heads, not everyone can be with their families during the holidays. If you have the room, open up your home to a friend or co-worker who won't be able to make it home for Christmas. This shows your kids just how much hospitality and kindness mean -- especially during a sentimental, festive time of year. For an added touch, let them pick out a gift to give and write a card to your special guest!
