- A mother and her family fasted, rather than gorged, on a holiday.
- An atheist wishes everyone a Merry Christmas, and celebrates the holiday similar to everyone else with her family yet in their own way.
- A woman, who is financially finding it difficult to pay to heat her house in NY, was offered a free trip/cruise in exchange for her artist talent. She will be teaching watercolor on the ship in a temperate zone while her house is closed for winter months.
- Children are being looked at through the eyes of patience and humility.
