As we are in the season of Advent, quickly approaching the season of Christmas (and Christmas-tide), I encourage you to remember why we deck the halls and bust out the holly: God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in Him, we might become the righteousness of God. (2 Cor. 5:21)
Here are two comics that I would encourage you to look at. Season's Greetings should bring a smile to your face and Needs vs. Wants might make you think this holiday season.

Let someone else take the last of the "most perfect gift ever."
Make a choice not to get stressed over the traffic or the shopping.
Give gifts that help those who are barely surviving (Project Heifer, International Justice Mission, Soup Kitchens, Thrift Shops)
Instead of asking for God to bless you this Christmas, ask for Him to use you to bless others.
Will you be like Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy (from Little Women) and share your special food with those who are hungry?
Give season greetings.
