Christmas has always been my favorite holiday. It’s a time where we can look back on everything we’ve been blessed with the past year and be thankful for all of the new friends we’ve made, the mistakes that turned into life lessons, and the family and friends we’ve had to support us through it all. It can be easy to get distracted from the real meaning of Christmas after the stress of finals, the Christmas shopping, and all of the other pressures that come with the holidays.
These things that are stressful to us can seem so miniscule compared to all of the other problems people are faced with, like not being able to afford presents for their children or others who aren’t able to enjoy Christmas at home with their family. It’s important to give back to others on Christmas, and it doesn’t only benefit those in need, but it also is a great feeling knowing that you’ve made an impact on someone’s life! Here are a few ways to give back this Christmas, because after all, isn’t that what the holiday season is all about?!
