Merry Christmas, happy Hanukkah, or whatever you want to hear

My wife, Lena, and I do not subscribe to the shopping sprees of Christmas. We do not give presents to friends or family, nor do we desire any gifts from others.

Our gift is instead to donate the amount we would otherwise have spent on gifts to a charitable organization. This year we have spent out money on UNICEF and bought 100 blankets, 80 kg of high-energy biscuits, 200 measles vaccines, and a school-in-a-box, which is basically a portable set of school equipment. These gifts will be used in UNICEF’s work in the parts of the world where children need it the most.

We wish you all a merry season. May you experience peace and prosperity in the new year.
