I can think of a few favorite gifts I've received over the years — the mouse slippers my nana knit, my first CD player, a neon yellow and purple snow suit.
As I've gotten older, I've also come to enjoy the giving aspect of the holidays, more so than the receiving. This time of year I try to remember to give to those besides famiily and friends, be it donations to charities or supporting local causes. I'm also doing so on Dec. 27 in Sudbury, where The American Red Cross is holding a blood drive. What better to give than the gift of life, as they say?
