When our kids were growing up, it was always a challenge during the Christmas season to keep the Greed Monster at bay. You know the one I’m talking about right? The kiddos were confronted with non-stop commercials for the hottest new toys during their favorite cartoons, and then the Christmas Wish Book Toy catalogs would arrive. Remember those? And I’m going to have to admit, I fell for all of that commercialism hook, line and sinker. I wanted my kids to have the latest and greatest at Christmas. I wanted to see the sparkle and joy in their eyes when they came downstairs and saw all of their Christmas wishes come true.
