Birth of a New Tradition Christmas Joy

Birth of a New Tradition


As the holidays approach,

the giant Asian factories are kicking into high gear

to provide Americans with monstrous piles of cheaply

produced goods -- merchandise that has been produced

at the expense of American labor. This year will be different.

This year Americans will give the gift of genuine

concern for other Americans. There is no longer an excuse that,

at gift giving time, nothing can be found

that is produced by American hands.

Yes there is!

It's time to think outside the box, people.

Who says a gift needs to fit in a shirt box,

wrapped in Chinese produced wrapping paper?

Everyone -- yes EVERYONE gets their hair cut.

How about gift certificates from your local American hair salon or barber?

Gym membership?

It's appropriate for all ages who are thinking about some health improvement.

Who wouldn't appreciate getting their car detailed?

Small, American owned detail shops and car washes would love

to sell you a gift certificate or a book of gift certificates.

Are you one of those extravagant givers who think nothing of plonking down the Benjamines on a Chinese made flat-screen?

Perhaps that grateful gift receiver would like his driveway sealed,

or lawn mowed for the summer, or driveway plowed all winter,

or games at the local golf course.

There are a bazillion owner-run restaurants --

all offering gift certificates.

And, if your intended isn't the fancy eatery sort, what about a half dozen breakfasts at the local breakfast joint.

Remember, folks this isn't about big National chains

-- this is about supporting your home town Americans with their financial lives on the line to keep their doors open.

How many people couldn't use an oil change for their car, truck or motorcycle,

done at a shop run by the American working guy?

Thinking about a heartfelt gift for mom?

Mom would LOVE the services of a local cleaning lady for a day.

My computer could use a tune-up, and I KNOW I can find some young guy who is struggling to get his repair business up and running.

OK, you were looking for something more personal.


Birth of a New Tradition Local Artesians

Arts and craft shows are wonderful places to shop for unique gifts for the holidays.
Local crafts people spin their own wool and knit them into scarves.
Find gift items by local artisans including fine art, crafts, jewelry, pottery, beautiful wood art, photography, clothing, prepared food and more.

For a seasonal listing of local arts and crafts fairs sponsored by schools, churches, craft organizations and nonprofit groups, check your local papers.

Plan your holiday outings at local, owner operated restaurants and leave your server a nice tip.

And, how about going out to see a play or ballet at your hometown theatre.

Musicians need love too, so find a venue showcasing local bands.


Shop Local this Christmas
Honestly, people, do you REALLY need to buy another ten thousand Chinese lights for the house?

When you buy a five dollar string of lights, about fifty cents stays in the community.

If you have those kinds of bucks to burn, leave the mailman, trash guy or babysitter a nice BIG tip.

You see, Christmas is no longer about draining the American pockets so that China can build another glittering city.

Christmas is now about caring about the US, encouraging American small businesses to keep plugging away to follow their dreams.

And, when we care about other Americans, we care about our communities, and the benefits come back to us in ways we couldn't imagine.

THIS could be the new American Christmas tradition.


Forward this to everyone on your mailing list -- post it to discussion groups

-- throw up a post on Craigslist in the Rants and Raves section in your city

-- send it to the editor of your local paper and radio stations, and TV news departments.

This is a revolution of caring about each other,

and isn't that what Christmas is all about?

Snowman Waving From the Top of The World My vote is to have Christmas traditions all year round. You see at Christmas time most people at least the ones I have met, always change just a little for the better around Christmas. I do not know whether or not it is the great yuletide Christmas carols, the festive atmosphere everywhere you go, or just some hidden part in all of us that screams out,
(I BELIEVE IN MORE THAN WHAT I SEE AROUND ME.)
You see, somewhere deep down inside we all believe in something better than we now have or see, and most of us feel a lot better when we help someone. Whether the person is in need or not, this feeling is what I call the feeling of Christmas, and we all should strive to feel this way all year long.

The feeling of the Christmas holidays is truly all about family, friends and celebrating all things good.

The Lord's birthday is swiftly coming
Christmas carols we're merrily humming,
Adoration and harmony spreads worldwide
As we eagerly await the happy Yuletide.

Enhance your Christmas, with Christmas poems and stories highlighted with your favorite Christmas carols. Christmas traditions are fast becoming a family way of life.
Poems are a simple way of inspiring others to join in on the Christmas traditions that love and poems bring to this Christmas holiday.
