Once I heard a commentary about Christmas. Someone said that Christmas was for rich people. All the lights, gifts, the Christmas tree, the parties and so on. It is really a contradiction when we know that in Christmas we celebrate the birth of a child in a manger outside of a town after his parents could not find shelter somewhere else. This is time of advent and time to prepare for Christmas. If Christmas is about giving Jesus a worth place where to be born in me, you and everyone, let us exert more efforts in preparing our hearts than our houses or workplaces. I found a list of gifts and decorations for this season. They cost nothing and everyone likes them.
List of priceless gifts:
Really listen, without interruption, criticism or judgment. Listen only.
2nd A smile
Happiness is something contagious… and helps you to look more beautiful.
3rd Written notes
It can be a simple “thanks for helping me,” “thank you for being here.” It can be remembered for ever and give joy to the person.
4th A compliment
Try to be simple and honest. “You look good,” “well done,” “the food was delicious,” can make a day special.
5th A favor
Try to do a favor every day.
Sometimes, there is nothing better than be alone. Be sensible and give or ask for this gift.
With this gift, people will feel good for sure. For example, all what you need to say is “hello,” “please,” and “thanks”.
If you really love your friends and family share these gifts, but not only, try to give them also to all the people around you even if they are not you acquaintances. It will be a nice Christmas.
