    whatelseisnew, naaaah. Santa shows up for the entire holidays starting before Thanksgiving. It was Jesus who showed up on Christmas. Besides, "Christmas Cheer" to most people means some form of alcoholic beverage.

    rachel, good idea. If you are going to scrooge your own family, you certainly should scrooge these people too.

    Seems like the word ought to be Christmas cheer. Santa only shows up on Christmas not on any other holiday.

    As for those Angel trees, you can get the same child all over the County. When I got my Angel off the tree, I usually spent a bunch on that child UNTIL I learned that same child was on several trees. What happened if duplicate items were received?

    I much prefer to give basic needs to someone in need, then chose a tag off a tree that is asking for specific things I don't even buy my own children-like ps3 systems, apple ipods etc. This is a great program.

    An often overlooked part of society, ESPECIALLY this time of year. What a great idea!
