Here's my holiday idea

I know this time of year many families have the tradition of driving around one evening to look at Christmas lights in the neighborhoods around town. Here's my two cents of how to make the most of it.

Before you go, get some cash. About $20, $50, or $100 (depending on what you can afford) in the form of $1 or $5 bills. As you drive around town, stop by a dozen or so grocery stores and other places along the way where the kids can hop out and put the cash in various Salvation Army kettles around town.

It's a good way to show the kids the joy of giving, and the Salvation Army depends so much on their Christmas kettle collections to meet their annual budget. When you're all done, stop by a Krispy Kreme for some hot chocolate.
