Christmas giving to the poor, the tipsy

Merry Christmas! This is the time of year that is supposed to bring a smile to our face, cheer to our heart and fill our ears with wishes of Christmas cheer.

As we all are aware, however, it is not like that for many of us. There are those of us who struggle to make it through each day. And you know what they say -- we are all just one paycheck away from that.

To celebrate appropriately, it only takes a few people to do a few things that will transform this holiday into what it has always been meant to be -- a time of selflessness and giving. When we give to others less fortunate than ourselves, we are giving the greatest gift we possibly could to our community and ourselves.

And remember, when going to festivities this year, there may be no better gift than to be a designated driver.
