Re: "Acts of kindness can be everyday part of life," Nov. 30.
For those of us tired of the commercialization of Christmas, here is a way to focus on giving, rather than getting.
Perform "24 Random Acts of Christmas Kindness." While kindness need not be random, as the grateful cyclist pointed out in her letter, sitting down as a family and drumming up 24 different ways to be kind is a fun way to shift the holiday focus from greed to goodwill.
The idea is not my own, but comes from a gifted and generous artistic friend. I hope your 24 acts will include ways to support the creative community of artists, artisans and growers, and recirculate your money in our local economy.
