"The holidays have become all about excess, rather than gratitude, simplicity, and love."

"I try to stay far removed from the commercial aspects of the holiday, and focus on the real meaning."

"It isn't about the little's always about love."

"Consider the fact that you don't even have to do the holidays.  Who says they are right for you and your family?  
There is no law dictating this!  Do what works for you."
