Does Kindness Change the Holidays?

Kindness is a practice not a quantity.

The holidays at the end of the year are supposed to be about kindness and renewal.   Chanukah and Christmas are the ones I know best.  There are many others – all to be honored and appreciated.   Ritual, spiritual and community celebrations are gifts we can give one another.

But so many people find them a burden – sense of heaviness sits on shoulders and weighs people down – can I deal with the presents I am supposed to give?    Will people remember me?   Am I invited to holiday parties?   Do I want to go?    All these social questions arise in so many hearts.
