       All the Thanksgiving leftovers are gone and the season for Christmas has begun. Time to get those outside lights up before the weather gets any colder. Tis’ the season to get out and shop for those special gifts for loved ones. But remember the true reason for this holiday is the birth of Jesus and the spirit of giving. Give of yourself with your time, not just by buying gifts.
