Don’t you agree that we already own too much? We live in an economy that almost forces us to buy stuff we don’t really need. As a result, our discarded junk fills up our a good part of our Earth’s surface. So why not give less? And if it’s expected of you to give a (materialistic) gift – be thoughtful and give something useful. Besides, what if I asked you to answer this question: what is the most important aspect of Christmas? No, it’s not the Christmas gifts. Spending time with loved ones, isn’t it?
