155. The important things this holiday season have nothing to do with ribbons and bows…

I know we all get excited when our favorite stores – SL or otherwise – have these big sales. We all flock there and try to get our favorite things. We wait for releases at special events and we get so excited. I am one of those people. Trust me. I literally just got back from The Epiphany before I took this photo, where I spent an obscene amount of lindens to get a stool to match the piano I got out of the Nutmeg gacha – because it was pretty and I wanted to treat myself, and I already have their distressed grand piano and I wanted to grow my SL piano collection just a little more.

But…

This year, and really every year, we need to remember that the holidays are about people. They’re about people and love and forgiveness and charity and togetherness. So many things that we can’t see and we can’t touch. We can’t unwrap them like we can the presents under our Christmas tree… but they are so important. This year is a little different than the ones before it because many of us aren’t able to spend the holidays with our families, and perhaps that’s why this year is hitting so many people so hard. We forget just how important that can be until we can’t have it.

This year, please remember to open your hearts and your minds a little bit more and worry about opening your wallets a little bit less. Think about your loved ones, your family and friends – those here with us, and those who have moved on – and focus on the true meaning of the holidays. It’s more important now than it has ever been. This year has been hard, and we can’t know without talking to someone what they’re really going through, so give that a thought or two over the holidays. Exchange kind words and smiles. Encourage one another. Try to be a force of good and spread happiness. We could all use a little bit more of that, and for some, it could be the greatest and most cherished gift they’ll receive this season.
