 Adventist Review: THE CHRISTMAS "GRINCHES"
I say "ironically" because Christmas is the time when all Christians—both committed and cultural—celebrate an event that was the exact opposite of today's more-is-better mind-set.
Unfortunately, the pressure to earn the money necessary to "keep up with the Joneses" in our Christmas celebrating means that, for many, Christmas actually robs us of time rather than creating an opportunity for prolonged family interaction and togetherness.
Another possibility is the creation of "service" coupons, which promise a free back rub, a game of basketball, a trip to the zoo, or just uninterrupted time in an activity of the recipient's choosing.

San Juan Island is, on average, a very wealthy community, but don't forget that an average depends on extremes by definition.
