GIVING GIFTS EARLY

I received my first Christmas gift a few weeks before Thanksgiving. My friend gave me home-grown parsley that she had dehydrated and put in a canning jar. She gave it to me early so I could use it on my Thanksgiving dinner.

I remember being able to open a Christmas gift early when I was a teenager. It was a lovely dress and Mom decided I would enjoy wearing it to a Christmas service. She did not go out and buy another gift to replace it; I just had one less gift under the tree. I felt like a princess in my new dress!

If you decide to give a gift early, don’t feel like you have to replace it with another one. It’s not the gift, or when you receive it, it’s the thought that counts!
