Are you selfish during Christmas or do you care about making others happy?

Now that I have grown older I am a big believer in making others happy during the holidays instead of getting things that I want. Do you feel the same way?

Personally for me, for many yrs. it has been about doing unto others, and it is better to give than to receive especially when they are less fortunate than you. I do enjoy giving gifts, and seeing the look on their face when they receive them.

yes, i feel the same way you do and especially this year. about a month ago, my hubby bought me a tablet for our 25th wedding anniversary and i love it. i can do just about everything on it and because we spent a little bit more money on it that we planned, i actually don't expect anything for Christmas from him and really, i don't want anything. i am very happy with the things that i have. this year, i will focus on my two daughters and making them happy.

I enjoy making other people happy by making them the treats they like or buying nice gifts but I also enjoy receiving gifts and eating the nice things my friends make.

I love to make everyone happy at xmas time. I just wish I could afford to do more for them.

Generally I don't spend money shopping, not for me not for anyone else. But on particular occasions: birthday, Christmas, Easter etc., I open my purse and don't mind how much I spend. Of course for my dear people. I like to see them happy, at least on holidays. Not every day but some times a year it's possible and I do it.
