What I learnt from The Grinch ...

Melkam Gena !                    #It'sSnowingInMyBubbleXx

One of our favorite quotes, from How the Grinch Stole Christmas. http://www.people.com/people/package/gallery/0,,20319528_20760228,00.htmlToday I wanted to talk a bout a well loved book written by a well loved man, Dr.Seuss . 'How The Grinch Stole Christmas' was published in 1957 and hasn't been put down since ! This charming book comes with many important messages about how Christmas is becoming increasingly commercialised as we spend more and more money on presents, decorations and food. This year I spent around £250 on presents and other Christmas bits and bobs, On the Save The Children website I found that that £250 could of bought enough hygiene kits to aid 10 families ! 

Although their are many wonderful, inspiring and thought provoking quotes written by Dr.Seuss of which I will be sure to write posts on in the near future , There is one that stands out in 'How The Grinch Stole Christmas' That reads " And the Grinch, with his Grinch feet ice cold in the snow, stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so ? It came without ribbons.It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags . And he puzzled and puzzled till his puzzler was saw. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before. What if Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store ? What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more ?" 

So with that quote in mind I wanted to let you know about Save The Children's charitable gifts that actually spreads the present from the recipient to children who need it most :) Their are loads of presents from a place in school for one child at £21 to a Health Workers First Aid Kit at £47 , there is  loads to chose from to warm anyone of any ages heart :) 

Stay Strong <3 Stay Smiley :) 

Today's Merry Christmas is in Ethiopian . In Ethiopia Christmas is known as 'Ganna' and is celebrated on the 7th of January , Gift giving is a very small part of Christmas their and children get very simple and practical gifts such as clothing :) 

Much Love, Love much-ly
