Christmas Presents

One local charity today reported that some kids won't find presents under their Christmas trees. They reportedly gathered 'only' 40,000 gifts instead of their target of 50,000 gifts. That's big because Christmas presents are serious issue here. Everybody...I mean EVERYBODY should get a present on Christmas. Either you're a kid or an adult. Meanwhile some kids in some third world countrie have to work in sweat shops to help their parents make some money for dinner.

If your parents, uncles, aunties, friends, neighbors want to give you presents, fine, take them. But, don't make it a big deal of not getting a present. Gifts giving is good. It helps the economy. But not getting one is not going to kill you.

And who to say that those people who requested presents through charity group really the needy ones ?
