Alternative Advent Calendar: Secrets of the True Spirit of Christmas

Alternative Advent Calendar: Secrets of the True Spirit of Christmas

Twenty five daily activities to make your Christmas...... and make Christmas for those around you. Christmas and Midwinter is traditionally the season of peace, friendship and generosity, when the solar sun begins to return to the Northern Hemisphere and the Light of loving kindness is reborn amongst us. Reject the false consumer hype and material expectations. Begin a new personal tradition by following this alternative approach to Christmas which allows you to take control and do something significantly different. Behind each 'Door' in this book is a simple idea or suggestion of how you can reach out to friends, family, community and the natural environment and integrate your loving, caring plans and impulses into practical actions which will bring real comfort, hope, connection and joy. No money is necessarily involved - this is giving of yourself. Each suggestion is universally relevant, regardless of geographic or genetic origins; social, academic or professional status; cultural background, religion or belief. They encapsulate the real relevance of this time of year.May your advent - your whole winter celebration - be filled with new purpose, adventures, experiences and achievements, and the true meaning of Christmas...LOVE FOR ALL!!!
