As part of our Christmas tradition, my family gives gifts to charity. We do this as we aren’t really in need of lots of presents for ourselves and see it as an opportunity to help others who aren’t as fortunate as us. I find the process very helpful because it gives me a chance to specifically donate and help causes that I think are important while also seeing and learning about how the rest of my family are helping others as well. This year I personally chose to give to Stand Up To Cancer as people that I know are experiencing cancer in their immediate families. So my giving up a gift to potentially give a huge gift to my friends is totally the best Christmas present I could possibly get. Plus it’s not like I still don’t get to spend lots of time with my nephews and nieces.
