It seems like everyone's needs are met for those few, short weeks. Then, on December 26, it all comes to an abrupt halt. Today, people are still in need. The hungry and homeless do not disappear when Christmas ends.
I don't want to be a grinch, but the Grinch was green, wasn't he? It seems like most things are going green - designer bags, cars, houses, even Christmas trees. Why shouldn't Christmas itself be the same?
