Joyful Giving!
 Genuine generosity is very special. It is not about 'giving to get'. It is about giving with no strings attached, no conditions.

So, Christmas is about giving freely... joyfully... sharing what you have, what has been gifted to you... things, time, money, experience, wisdom, attention, affection... even life itself!

You don't have to believe fully in the Christmas story to benefit from the idea that a generous universe gifted humanity - all of us - with examples of people prepared to accept pain, humiliation and death in the service of truth, justice, compassion and love.

Christmas is a reminder that generosity need have no limits. So, please do not think of holding back!
