Do your holiday celebrations include giving back to your community? Think about ways your family could share their blessings with others. Perhaps you could volunteer to help serve the meal at the homeless shelter, make tray favors for a local nursing home, or help pack the food boxes for the needy at your local church or community center. Remember, your volunteer efforts are needed and appreciated throughout the year, not just at the holidays.

  1. I have always done a bit of volunteer work as well as my regular work and I believe I have got far more back than I have given. At the moment I am volunteering in the music teaching area for children, doing admin work. This is an all year round thing but heats up at Christmas. : )
