Already, not even 8:30a.m. as I type this, the pictures are flooding Facebook — you know the kind: people showing off their new-gotten treasures, or pictures of kids ripping open brightly colored packages.
And, truly, I do not begrudge anyone the wonderful gifts they received. I do not begrudge anyone the joy and excitement at getting presents, and I don’t want to spoil anyone else’s fun.
But seriously–if you are over 7-8 years old there is no excuse to brag about what you got for Christmas or what Santa brought you. If you are old enough to count change on a jug of milk from a five-dollar bill, you are old enough to have learned that Christmas is not about how many presents you get, but how many you can give.
