The Season for Giving

December 15th, 2017 by Janet Wolf

The Season for Giving-Even Scrooge learned the joy of giving. The Muppet Christmas Carol

Do you remember the gifts you have given more than the gifts you received? Most of us do. However you celebrate the season for giving; with 8 days of Hanukkah, Christ’s birth or a secular celebration, it is all about giving and the joy it brings others.

Here is a fun memory of mine that illustrates my point. The same year my sister and I received a stereo HiFi (it was HI before it was WI), we gave our Dad a bright orange soft cushioned toilet seat. It matched the crazy wallpaper he picked for his bathroom ‘sanctuary’.  It was the hit of Christmas morning! It was a gift that kept on giving, comfort and joy. That crazy toilet seat is a cherished memory.

The gift that kept on giving-comfort & joy

Whether or not you believe that Christmas has become too commercialized, we are a country that is very charitable during the holidays. The last few months of the year make up what is commonly called the Giving Season for the nonprofit community. I love seeing the Toys for Tots box at our gym fill up three, four, five times. I love the Coats for Kids organization. New or gently used coats are donated each December and dry cleaned for free by local cleaners. During Christmas Prelude in the Kennebunks, the Historic Inns of Kennebunkport collects admission fees that go to our local food pantry. The donated food box at our local grocery store overflows.

The season for giving is not all about dollars and material items. The gift of time is also valuable. It can be cooking and serving at church suppers, driving and delivering Meals on Wheels or sharing our knowledge and talents on town councils and chambers of commerce, the list is endless.

Innkeepers are givers, in all seasons. Innkeepers go beyond and above when it comes to the giving of their time and knowledge. In this season for giving, The B&B Team celebrates you. We thank you all for your hard work and dedication. 

The B&B Team wishes you all comfort and joy in the season of giving.
