EPISODE 7: The three gifts at Jesus’ birth urge give-away’s; manure helps focus on the way Jesus was born, not decorations; non-material gifts or hand-made gifts, such as tree ornaments and their memories, counter gift-giving obscenity. Give stories. If we hate it, why do we do it? Developing a willingness to say No. Santa says good kids get gifts; if you don’t, you’re bad. Distributing alternative ideas outside a mall on Buy Nothing Day. Buy things that last and at Thrift Shops (Tony’s $6 suit). Simple ≠ ugly; attractive home ≠ expensive. Emil Durkheim: importance of family rituals; eat together, stay together; share values at meals. Rituals create a sense of security, well-being, belonging.
