The holiday season Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Winter Solstice is traditionally filled with food, family, lights, songs and gifts. Over the years, as we are all well aware, the gift/commercial aspect of the season has overshadowed the more spiritual and reverent aspects of the holidays.

Some folks manage to buck the frenzy and share their gifts in a more personal way by serving dinner at the rescue mission, donating food and bedding to an animal shelter, or adopting a needy family. A brave few chuck the whole thing and take a trip to the tropics, basking in the warmth of the sun rather than the glow of a decorated tree.

Does your family celebrate the holiday season in a non-traditional, do-it-yourself way? If so, tell us about it in the comments section below.
