On this most holy day of consumerism I found this post in my gator from lifehack.org. First I should state for the record that contrary to what my wife says I am not a grinch, but sometimes the holidays really rub me the wrong way. This post on the other hand was enlightening as to how the holidays could be with a little effort.
The next generation will be shaped by consumerism more than any other generation and I like the idea of modeling good behavior for the little future decision makers. This post describes and gives tips as to how make room for this years Christmas gifts early and how to teach children about charity.
Maybe there is hope after all.
