A Christmas Conspiracy

Everyone seems to struggle with the balance of a traditional family Christmas focused on the holiday's real meaning and the frenzied, cultural Christmas that promotes irrational consumerism and meaningless "things" in place of true celebration and generosity.

We saw this video in church a few weeks ago and I loved it. When Brooke included it, along with her own thoughts on the subject, on her blog today I had to snag it. (I even figured out how to post video for this very reason. FINALLY!)

Take a look:



How are you working to make your holiday more meaningful this year? In the economic crisis our country faces, I'm hopeful that people may begin to look for more significance this Christmas than just a pile of presents. I'd love to hear your thoughts! Enjoy the video - and here's wish you a Christmas focused on the holy-day, not just the holiday bustle.

Great video! This year I'm trying to give what I can even though money can be tight. I posted in a recent blog about giving to co-workers to show appreciation, so I will probably get a few boxes of those snowman-themed Krispy Kremes for the office. :)

What a great post! It's so good to sit back and think the true meaning of Christmas. My husband and I are shopping for a couple of kids that our church is trying to make a good Christmas for. We were so excited to participate!! It makes you feel good.
