Just one more thing on the charity theme… It seems like Christmas is a boom time for requests and perhaps donations to charity. It’s nice that it happens – but why does it have to wait til the end of the year? Are we feeling generous because of the festive season & the wind down from work? Or guilty over our consumerism? Or is it just more in our face from the posters and letter box drops…?

Moreover – does the season change who we donate to? Is it the Homeless? Or Kids? Or medical and Cancer research etc.?

Do you give at Christmas more than other times? Do you give differently? How do we choose whom to donate to at this time of year – and what / how to give?
