Christmas is a special time of year to celebrate the birth of our Messiah Jesus. Commercialism seems to have run away with our ability to enjoy it.

Here are seven good ideas:

  1. Forget the Christmas Cards
  2. Skip the Baking
  3. Eat Out
  4. Scale Back the Decorating
  5. Scratch ‘Christmas Party’ Off Your To-do List
  6. Shop Online
  7. Don’t skimp on Church
