December. 12/12 months. The month of December is filled with many experiences and feelings, usually leading to a joyful end of the year. In this month, we often recognize our ups and downs, as well as focus on a time of happiness with family and friends. We also show our appreciate towards our loved ones in the form of presents and gifts, whether it’s Christmas or Hanukkah. We do so even if our wallets and bank accounts are abundant or straight struggling. Why? Because of love. In a week’s time we will see the faces of the people we love turn to a tremendous smile because that’s when they’ll see just how much appreciated they are. And it doesn’t have to be by tons of expensive gifts, because a lot of the time it’s the thought that counts the most. For example, I love to make DIY (do it yourself) projects as gifts because it takes actual effort into them. It’s worth it because it just shows that much more appreciation, and on top of that, it’s usually pretty inexpensive.
