I'm very interested in a "Buy Nothing Christmas." Sure, there are people we'll probably buy presents for anyway, but why not shift the emphasis to gifts that come from the heart--things that we make, for example?

A friend of mine does her gift-giving on Thanksgiving, making that the exchange of tokens of appreciation among those close to her. Then, Christmas--which is a very religious holiday for her--remains a more spiritual celebration.

This is just one alternative to the shopping frenzy (and sometimes related credit-card debt) that occurs every December.

What are you planning this year, to make it a "buy less" holiday season or even a "Buy Nothing Christmas"?
