PAY A VISIT TO ORPHANAGES OR CHILDREN’S HOMES: Christmas can be a difficult period for people who do not have families to celebrate with. Make the Christmas a memorable one for these children by spending quality time with them.
Remember, there is love and happiness in sharing with others. Make some else’s Christmas a memorable one by sharing what you have no matter how small.
