Nice J. McCoy! The Christmas holiday has gotten so commercialized people have become more distracted from what the season is all about. I have two suggestions for you and your family.
1) Call the Activity Director or Social Worker at your local nursing home and ask if there may be a resident with no family that you could 'adopt' for Christmas. If yes, ask if they could suggest a simple activity that you could do with that person. Something as simple as reading "Twas the Night Before Christmas". Ask if the resident could have cookies and milk. Residents like to be asked about their lives. Show some genuine interest.
2) Offer to help out at your local soup kitchen. You could help make platters, greet the guests, and/or help with clean up.
Best Wishes for a Wonderful Christmas ... Looks like you heart is giving you a great start!
