Why not pick something from this list of Christmas gifts which are NOT advertised n television?

Give your parents the words, "I love you."

Give your children a full day of your time.

Give an ear to someone who needs a listener.

Give a hand to someone less strong.

Give an old friend a surprise visit or letter.

Give a former neighbor a phone call.

Give yourself time to reflect on this holy season.


The Rabbi & The Soap Maker
Golden Spread Council

A Rabbi and a soap maker were walking along and the soap maker questioned the Rabbi by asking, "What good is religion? There's been religion for a long time, but people are still bad to each other"
The Rabbi was silent until they saw a boy who was dirty from playing in the street. The Rabbi asked the soap maker, "What good is soap? We've had soap for many, many years and people still get dirty"

The soap maker protested the comparison and insisted that the soap had to be used in order to keep people clean. "Exactly my point", said the Rabbi. "Religion", he said, "has to be applied in order to do anybody any good."
