Resident shares thoughts on giving to others year-round, not just on Christmas

To the Editor:

I haven’t decorated for Christmas since leaving my parent’s home in the ’70s. I still have their lights and some ornaments that are up to 70 years old. I don’t buy Christmas presents. Instead, I help others year-round when I can, and I do it without asking for anything in return. The hype and crass greed around Christmas bugs me. I believe that you should be a giving person year-round, just as Jesus was. He didn’t help others only once a year, and neither should we.
