Sometimes the best gift you can give or get yourself
has very, very little to do with spreading wealth.
The most joy at the holidays comes from time with family
and acts of random kindness that we may somehow see.
Why not cause a random act of kindness on your own?
There are things you could do while being lazy at home.
Play trivia at Free Rice to help feed mouths worldwide.
Or use SearchKindly.com for your next world-wide-web-ride.
If you have an unwanted fur coat in your room,
donate it to help comfort an orphaned raccoon.
Or if you have the skills to knit or crochet a sweater,
there are penguins and hens that need them to get better.
There are tons of easy ways to spread some holiday cheer
to those outside your circle of friends held near and dear.
I think that is how the Who-ville people would show today
that the holidays are about more than presents and a big light display.
