Three gifts

We give our son three gifts from us for Christmas. We decided on three because Jesus received gifts from three Wise Men. It's worked out well. It helps us stay focused and avoid the chaos and materialism that is rampant in the U.S. this time of year.

We spent Christmas in Tahiti once and it changed our attitude toward Christmas and the whole holiday season. We used to spend, spend, spend, and rush, rush, rush just like everybody. But in Tahiti they don't do that. It's much more simple. It gave us pause to examine and reflect upon what we were doing and why.
