HufPost Tabe Talk: Giving-Back Holiday


Every Friday, The Huffington Post presents a compelling topic to spark discussion at your dinner table.

As the year winds down and the presents pile up, it’s easy to get caught in the shop-and-buy frenzy of the holiday season. It’s important to remember this is a season about giving though, not just buying. Instead of asking for the gifts you want this year, what if you asked for glasses to help a child who can’t see, or a mosquito net to prevent a family from getting malaria?

So as we get closer to Hannukah, Christmas and Kwanzaa, let’s talk about giving — and getting — new kinds of gifts.

Questions for discussion:

* Is there a charity you’d want to support instead of getting all your presents this year?

* What’s something you could make as a gift for your parents? Your siblings? A friend?

* What do you think about having a no-gift-at-all holiday?

Visit The Huffington Post for more holiday ideas for giving back.
