No amount of money is equal to me.
Joy is free
Kindness has no cost.
Christmas didn't used to come with a price tag. My stocking always had an orange and walnuts in it. My favorite Christmas present was a bike my dad rebuilt for me. Joy came from snowball fights and family visiting.
Furthermore, no amount of money insures a good Christmas and lack of such does not mean a bad one.
( I don't care what Kay jewelers commercials say)
So find your joy this Christmas, but not in a department store. My happiness can not be found under a tree. I will make presents, enjoy time with my family and have the most amazing holiday ever, I encourage you all to do the same.
