One Christmas I asked everyone in the family (including school age kids) to write down the ten most important things about Christmas. Not one list said the gifts! The cookies, the trips to see the lights, the music, and many more holiday traditions made to several lists. Then with limited time and money, we began the tradition of making Christmas count.

Hey Sparkers,

"I have this Christmas-time dream that I will be able to buy a gift for every person I know. The reality is my money runs out long before my list of friends. I can get something nice for my closest family and something small for a few more relatives and close friends. I am learning to put my brain to work coming up with free experience gifts, which is basically an activity I can do with someone. I don't want to let the year go by without letting them know how much I love and appreciate them."
