The first question you might ask someone around Christmas is, “What did you get for Christmas?” The question presumes that the what makes the holiday season is the fact that you receive a gift, something that you wanted. It’s nice to receive a gift from people who care about you.
A better question might be, “What did you give for Christmas?” What makes the season is not the getting; it’s the giving. Giving comes from a place of abundance, and that abundance is what allows one to be charitable.
The greatest gift you may ever have is the ability to give.
