It's the time of year when movies and TV tell us we learn important life lessons about the real meaning of Christmas.
This can mean family, giving, whatever TV and movies seem to say, I suppose. In the case of Die Hard, it means blowing up Alan Rickman in a spectacular fashion.
Things are rough out there, of course. Nobody is saying it isn't. But it can also be a time to step back from buying that one more $15 present and putting that money toward something that will help somebody who actually needs the money more than you need one more package under the tree to make things symmetrical.
If you give to any charity this year in the spirit of the Holidays, why not send me a message so I know what you've been up to, and I'll post a Signal Watch Holiday Honor Roll. You don't have to say how much you gave, but we'd love your name, who you gave to, and if you feel like saying so, why you gave to that organization.

You can also mention any groups that you regularly give to, especially if you have someone you give to monthly.
I'll give an example:
I give monthly to Capital Area Food Bank, which provides food to local families in need.If you have an organization you give to (that I won't find creepy), just send it our way via our email or click the contact tag on this website.
