“The holiday season is about love! Share it. Spread it. Live it”
Amy Leigh Mercree
Unfortunately, the holiday season or festive season in any culture or country is now mostly about spending money. Money buying expensive gifts which leaves both the recipient and the one giving them mostly dissatisfied.
If instead we would be kind and spread love to those around us, family or friends or just strangers, we would be happier.
“Festivals are occasions to empower ourselves in the course of humanity – they are the occasions to rekindle the promise of humanity in our heart – the promise that we keep forgetting in the cacophony of manmade labels”
It is Eid or Christmas
Hanukkah Or Diwali
An occasion to celebrate
Don’t just celebrate alone
Include all those around you
Be more humane, be kinder
Spread the message
We often pay lip service
Empty words that carry no significance
Just wishing each other a happy holiday
Without entering into the spirit of giving
Include the excluded, love the unloved
Do something that makes a difference
Actually and really
I realize that all my quotes essentially say the same thing this week. I wanted to share them because despite us spending millions or perhaps billions every holiday season, the level of happiness goes down. Maybe it’s time to not give material things but just spread kindness and joy. Make others feel included and erase divisions.
