Something Different This Christmas

by Joel on December 24, 2010

Just wanted to wish you a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.

I have a challenge for you…

One of the things my family enjoys is identifying another family or individual in need and being a “Secret Santa”. We always enjoy going to the store and loading up a cart with food and gifts and then sneaking up to our Secret Santa family’s house…carefully placing the items on the front porch…. ring the door bell…..AND RUN LIKE HECK!

We always have such a warm feeling when we do this. I think one of the reasons is not too many years ago, we were the recipients of a “Secret Santa”. I remember how loved I felt in a time that was quite depressing.

So here is my challenge for you…

Now matter how good or bad this year has been for you… go and do something nice for someone today. If you have extra to spare this year, run to the store today and do an impromptu “Secret Santa”. You can do some type of service like go sing carols to a neighbor or at retirement home. Or you can just invite someone who will be alone this Christmas to your home to celebrate with you.

Just a simple act of kindness can go a long way.

Please feel free to comment below and let me know what you did today to help someone else

Merry Christmas,
