DELIVERING CHRISTMAS BY TERRI GRAVITT
Giving makes us feel happy. Giving is good for our health, deepens social connections, and evokes gratitude. Giving is simply contagious! Though our hearts are still inclined toward giving gifts, maybe now more than ever, since our introduction to the internet and online shopping over the past couple of decades, and even more since the pandemic in 2020, the face of Christmas giving has dramatically changed. The holidays we spent in quarantine conditions made it necessary to give to our friends and family without the benefit of sharing the same spaces. Now we find that whether we are on our couches or in our cars, in a public place or in the privacy of our own homes, there is a strong possibility in the months leading up to Christmas that we are browsing online to see what we can buy for those we love and sometimes having it delivered right to their doors!
