Top Sites Tuesday – Holiday Party!

December 23, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

This weeks theme is all about you. What puts you in the Holiday Spirit? Let everyone know what you’re up to or just wish everyone Happy Holidays!

Just wanted to wish everyone on Blog Dump’s Top Sites Tuesday a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

I was just thinking that maybe for some other people, this Christmas won’t be very merry at all. Maybe the job or money situation isn’t so good. And since parents always want to give their best for their children (and grandchildren too!), maybe some are struggling to just provide something nice this holidays. To anybody in this situation, just remember that children will always value the time and love of a parent rather than expensive toys.

My siblings and I were just talking about it recently, and I remember my parents going on and on about all the toys that they’d bought for us, that would essentially be broken like 24 hours later! And you know the funny thing was? My siblings and I agreed that the best ‘toy’ we ever had was this humongous empty box that had held our giant freezer that we converted to a battle tank. It became this big family project and we all sat down and painted it battle-ready green and it gave us hours of essentially ‘free’ entertainment… My dad and mom took time out to play the enemy patrol… and we all have great memories of it! And we couldn’t remember half of the so called ‘expensive’ toys. Silly children I guess 😉

And a Public Service Announcement please…

Welcome! The Freecycle Network™ is made up of 4,867 groups with 6,857,000 members across the globe. It’s a grassroots and entirely nonprofit movement of people who are giving (& getting) stuff for free in their own towns. It’s all about reuse and keeping good stuff out of landfills. Each local group is moderated by a local volunteer (them’s good people). Membership is free. To sign up, find your community by entering it into the search box above or by clicking on “Browse Groups” above the search box. Have fun!

Be that as it may, I just wanted to highlight this amazing grass-roots effort for recycling on the internet. I learned about Freecycle.Org from my friends who have been ‘recycling’ their unwanted stuff and giving it away to people who would treasure it. Sort of like, ‘my trash is your treasure’ I guess. It’s not about just charity really. It’s about being ‘green’ for the environment, hence the emphasis on recycling. It’s about cherishing that loved object enough to give it away to someone who needs it instead of into the trash. Me and my friends have given away books and toys and pretty much anything that still has value that’s just taking up space. I think this is a great way of sharing some ‘holiday spirit’ this Christmas!

    You’re right about that empty box being the best toy, I sure loved making stuff out of them when I was a kid. Sometimes the simplest things are the best things. Merry Christmas!
