One of my favorite memories of Christmas, from my growing up years is doing Sub for Santa. Some years our family was very blessed and we were able to help families a lot. Other years we helped by simple getting a star with a child’s name on it.
Why you ask is this one of my favorite memories? Because I can still remember how happy we all where shopping for someone who needed it. In getting outside of ourselves and our wants we were able to really experience the joy of Christmas.
“Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?
“When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?
“Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?
“And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me” (Matt. 25:37–40).
