Is It Time To Stop Giving Gifts

November 21st, 2012 Viewed 1633 times, 2 so far today

Since when did a time that’s supposed to be full of joy become one of dread and obligation?  You know what I’m referring to—the fact that every year everyone wonders whom they must find a gift for, and whether they’ll get one in return.

I’m firmly in the camp where I do not believe that I have the right to tell someone that they should or should not get something for me—that I should give out of how I have been blessed and to be a blessing rather than what I will receive—but how does that balance with the fact that many people will take the fact that I gave them a gift as an obligation to give something back.
