Belief: Practices of Giving at the Holidays

I have been talking to folks about their beliefs and practices around giving at this wonderful holiday time. 

individual beliefs seem to be very consistent while the practices of giving are very different.  For this reason I thought I would share a some of the practices of giving that I have come across.

One friend of mine told me that she has a practice of giving the largest bill in her wallet to the ‘bell ringers’ who stand outside the grocery stores and other business establishments.  I marveled at this as I typically watch the vast majority of shoppers walk as far around the ‘bell ringers’ as possible while this friend has a practice of giving the largest bill in her wallet.

She shared that one day she had just come from an event at which she was selling books…the largest bill was a $50.00 bill.  The eyes of the young man ringing the bell were large and the thanks were many.

This friend went on to say that being a bell-ringer is a cold job.  So, besides offering the largest bill in her wallet, she also asks if they want a cup of coffee or tea as most grocery stores now have coffee shops inside.

What is your practice of giving at the holidays?  Share with me and I will share with others.

How would you like to consider shifting some of your long-held  beliefs?
