Zen Habits Christmas ideas

I love giving and receiving gifts.  When I read this I wanted to share it.  It's a blog entry from Zen Habits but it is support for enjoying less gift buying.

I was reminded of a family that participated in Musicalia classes many years ago.  They decided in their extended and immediate family NOT to give gifts.  They would gather together as a family and they would sing and prepare a meal.  

The mom told me it took about 2-3 years for everyone to feel comfortable with this new tradition but they all became comfortable and their Christmas was transformed to something she felt was more human and more meaningful for them.
