I came across this powerful blog post about the upcoming holiday season. Particularly the gift-giving-season part of the holiday season. I don’t usually get myself too stressed out about Christmas gifts and figuring out what to get people, but I am definitely touched by the way this post redirects the entire mentality behind the stuff we collect.
I am a huge fan of Patagonia (the clothing company), and after watching the video on that post, I’m even more impressed! I hope you check it out. Anything that brings my awareness closer to the present is a good thing. I hope it stops to make you think, too.
“Living is not buying. To be a citizen of the earth is to put one’s brief life to the use of one’s dearest gifts.”
I leave you with this … in case you forgot how cute Chase Humphrey looks wearing a Santa hat. Happy Holidays!
