The True Meaning Of The Holidays

The holidays
Are upon us
The season
Of spending
And greed

It's sad that we
Have come to
See these things
As the meaning
Of the season

Instead of
It being
What it should be
For everybody
Of religious
A time to
And reach out
To your
Fellow man
Any way
You possibly can
Don't you see
That is what
The holidays
Are really about
Giving not recieving
Giving what you can

To help someone
Not because
You have to
But because
You do and should
Truly want to
Because it is
The right
Thing to do
You want
To make a
To someone
That you can
That is what
The holidays
Mean to me
What about you?

I agree. I actually hate

I agree. I actually hate shopping and so I have always grasped the true meaning of holidays. Give in ways that really mean something. It's not all about the money and how large the gift pile is. It's about cooking that big breakfast...hugging the people you love...actually telling them that you love them.
