Just thought I'd toss this out for your consideration.
This year I've decided not to give any presents out for Christmas (other than a small one to my nephew).
Instead I am asking family and friends to each pick a charity and I will donate to the charity in their name.
Since I've seen some folks upset about commercialism of Christmas and such I thought I'd suggest it as something to consider doing.
Most of us don't need the stuff and there are lots of charities out there who do have great need and do a lot of good.
