I have decided to make an earnest attempt to buy less mass produced, battery operated stuff next year for Christmas presents. One thing I might give is chickens, cows, goats or buffaloes–through charitable organizations to poor families around the world, in the name of one of my loved ones.
I am also going to try to buy hand-made local craft items. And I may try to make some gifts of my own.
I’ll tell you in twelve months how successful the plan turns out to be.
