Christmas – why I chose to stop receiving presents and why it’s so much more than that…

 

Threads - Present Image

So today I am guest posting over on the lovely Threads network… about why I gave up receiving Christmas presents a couple of years back.

If you’d like to check it out, have a read and see what you think.

And before you accuse me of coming over all bah-humbug, I still give Christmas presents (and love doing so), I have just chosen to stop receiving them. Over the next few weeks I’ll be blogging some more about what the festive season really means to me, how to get the Christmas¬†balance right with kids¬†(without spoiling all the magic!) and some ideas for a low-impact sustainable Christmas (if like me you’re a little allergic to all that plastic). Stay tuned, and I’d love to hear your thoughts too about all things Christmas…
