This week’s
Fanatical Fashion post has got me thinking about
holiday gift-giving. Many years ago my family decided to forgo buying presents for each other (nieces and nephews excluded) and, instead, give the money to a family in need, or a charity of our choosing. It’s a very honourable thing to do (yay on us), but I will admit that I do miss that Christmas morning ritual of running down to the living room and opening packages with furor.
