Celebrating A Destitute Christmas

There is a sort of transcendental peace about poverty.  I usually find the holiday season fun, but very stressful.  The crush of shopping, making sure all the favorite holiday things are celebrated and everyone will get what they want, and all the worry about planning the holiday make me anxious.

  This year, when Black Friday rolled around, we spent the day working quietly together.  On Cyber Monday, the computer was off, and we were outside enjoying the beautiful weather.  Quiet days they were, filled with family and pleasant work, because there will be no shopping for Christmas.  There will be no presents for Christmas.  Our gift is one of the greatest ones this holiday - the gift of us all spending time together.  How many other families are so blessed?

  Just because we can't afford to buy things doesn't mean our holiday won't be filled with love and joy.  This series of posts is inspired by celebrating this season with no funds.
