Have you noticed? The Christmas barrage has begun. Right after Halloween I began to hear Christmas songs in the stores.
I sense a deeper anxiety around Christmas this year. Stores are worried people won't spend. Shoppers are worried they do not have enough to spend or dare not spend what they have.
Recently four young adults have posted a YouTube video inviting folks to rethink their Christmas giving. It is called "The Gift of Presence." Click here for the link.
They invite us to give our presence as a present this Christmas.
Watch it and let them know what you think.
P.S. For the sake of full disclosure, two of the young adults in the video are part of my family.
