“Let us keep Christmas beautiful without a thought of greed.”
As soon as we see December approaching, our first thoughts are about the tree and decorating it. But right after that another thought strikes – gifts!
Of course, the image of the Christmas tree isn’t complete without a pile of gifts underneath it, and the spirit of Christmas is incomplete without seeing the faces of our loved ones as they open their gifts. But at the same time, let’s not forget that we also need to gift our planet something – a green Christmas!
