The Reason For The Season

The malls here in Miami began decking the halls 2 months ago, and had Santa's train installed just as the last back to school sales were ending. I know it's cliche at this point to feel nostalgic for the days when the holy season of giving gently revealed itself shortly after Thanksgiving. Today, a 5am scuffle in the line outside of Best Buy on Black Friday merely marks the halfway point in the season of stress and artifice.




This year, I'm committing to honoring the reason for the season - the winter solstice - and celebrating this beautiful time of year by spending quality time with the people that I love, and sharing meaningful gifts instead of spending time fighting the crowds so I can check people off my list with Ipod accessories.

For the like minded:

ENVIRONMENT
World Wildlife Fund
GAY STUFF
ANTI DRUG WAR
PRO-PEACE / PRO-LIBERALISM / PRO-CIVIL RIGHTS / ANTI-IDIOCY
HIV / AIDS / BREAST CANCER
ANIMAL FRIENDS
ART AND MUSIC SAVE OUR LIVES
HOLIDAY CARDS AND ECO-DECORATING


Now go for a walk with someone you love.
