I came across these two advertisements in the province newspaper. They both emphasize that Christmas is the time for giving, but also highlight the different perspectives that people have concerning holiday spirit. What type of giving is more fulfilling?.

  1. Fulfilling, but also meaningful. The social process of giving is to connect people; we offer up something precious to someone precious. If we haven’t invested in our gift, either through our time or effort, then what do gifts mean? “It’s the thought that counts” might qualify as effort, but not during a season when gifting has overtaken giving. I prefer to buy friends and family gifts that I stumble upon, that remind me of them, that I want to gift to let them know they are more than just number 6 on my gift list.
