“Christmas gift suggestions: to your enemy, forgiveness. To an opponent, tolerance. To a friend, your heart. To a customer, service. To all, charity. To every child, a good example. To yourself, respect.” –  Oren Arnold

Christmas, above all, is about the spirit of giving. This 25th December, don’t just sit around the Christmas tree waiting for your presents. Instead, be someone else’s Santa Claus. Here’s how: 

1. The most meaningful thing you can give someone is the joy of reading. Donate old books to an NGO.
