Spreading Christmas Cheer

We do one thing to spread Christmas cheer each day. It's fun to do the unexpected and typically takes minimal planning. I wrote a list of all the activities we wanted to do and then I've worked them into our schedule as best I can. 

We have passed out lottery tickets to strangers. 

We've paid for the person behind us in the drive thru. 

We've left goodies for our UPS guy and our postman. 

We've donated to the bell ringers!

We've donated food to a food bank, clothes to St Vincent de Paul and money to our church and World Vision. 

We've filled a meter. 

We've given librarians candy canes. 

We've held doors open and let people (and cars) in front of us. 

We have more to do - the season isn't over and there are many more items on our list but we have had fun so far. 

Tomorrow we get to be Samta for our friends! I wonder what Santa brought for us to pass out!

How do you spread cheer? How are you a light for Him to those who may not know Him? Give giving a try, even if it's just a smile.
