35 days

Well there are just 35 shopping days until Christmas. Thankfully this year it is the thought of the gift that counts. I was going to go into some thoughts about how we shouldn't worry about the gifts we give and be thankful for the one true gift that was given at Christmas. We all hear it every year, remember the reason for the season. Yet we all go out to the mall, see Santa, spend too much money and eat too much food. Not that there is anything inheritanly bad in all this, I enjoy it as much as the next person. But beyond reading the Christmas story in the gospels what other ideas to people have for not forgetting what the season is really about? Just wondering?
