The Grinch sitting on the outside
Do you know a Grinch?
Have you ever noticed people who do not like Christmas? Usually they are the ones sitting on the outside, looking in.
1. Someone without enough money to fully participate.
2. Someone from a different religion.
3. Someone with little family.
4. Someone new to the area.
5. Someone left out.
No one likes being in that position. No one likes being left out in the cold.
This year, I got a Grinch mask, and the Grinch book.
I want my students to learn that the Christmas/holiday season is a time for giving, and that money is optional. We can give a good attitude, we can give a smile and acceptance. This is a season of joy. This is a season of love and friendship. All need to be included!
Christmas cannot be bought in a store. We need to cultivate it in our heart.
