I read this amazing book over the holidays that I wanted to share with you guys. It’s called “Hundred Dollar Holiday” by Bill McKibben, and it definitely changed how I look at Christmas.
It’s provides a lot of great detail on the history of Christmas and how St. Nick turned into the jolly guy who brings presents. It focuses on the concept of a hundred-dollar holiday. Literally. Only spend $100 on all the holiday gifts you have to get. Whether you buy 3 gifts or 30. It’s about creativity, thought, DIY projects, etc. It changed my life and the way I think about the holidays.
We, as a society, spend soooo much money during the holiday season and there are so many other ways to show appreciation for others than dollar signs. I totally encourage you all to read it. Even today, well after the holidays are over. It’s still a fabulous book. And even if you enjoy spending lots on gifts for people, or have lots to spend, you should still read it because it’s just a great book overall!
