“It’s the MOST wonderful time of the year ,” sings Andy Williams in my head, usually when I’m looking for a parking space at the grocery store, way in the back. But the singing is not always sarcastic in my head and I know that for my young children, each day of December holds the promise of something holiday related. Unfortunately, while Christmas can bring out the best in our giving spirits , it can also be a nightmare of consumerism at its worst and the packaging, wrappings, and trappings of holiday celebrations both small and large make it even worse. Fighting the “gimmes” with children at this time of year can be hard, especially when Santa is supposedly able to bring anything your child’s heart desires.
