How do you get into the spirit of giving around the holidays?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on November 2, 2013
“We have an 8-year-old, and we give him a $3 allowance every week, which he puts into three jars labeled ‘save,’ ‘spend,’ ‘give.’ Before the holidays, we talk to him about who he will donate the ‘give’ to.”
“During the holidays, I think about and am thankful for all I have in life. Thinking about that and those I love makes me want to give back.”
“I like to think about those I love and the experiences we share and what is meaningful to them, so I can give them something that brings them joy.”
“I like to start getting gifts early so I won’t stress out about it later. If I wait, it can make me resentful, and I lose that spirit.”
