Christmas is coming, the goose is getting fat

Christmas is coming, the goose is getting fat...
Please put a penny in the old man's hat!

Remember that? It's a scene of goodness and abundance and a plea to help those who are "less fortunate."

That seems to be a recurring theme around the holidays. It's too bad that food banks won't take home canned food or homemade bread. The alternative is to find someone who needs food and give it to them directly.

You'd think that with food stamps and soup kitchens, there wouldn't be many hungry people in the USA, but there are. If you can't find anyone to give to directly, you can always click to donate and that won't even cost you anything.

Still, if you canned and stocked up last summer, your pantry will be full of good things. Keep your eyes open; you just might find an opportunity to share. 'Tis the season, you know.

    "If you haven't got a penny, a ha'penny will do.
    If you haven't got a ha'penny, God Bless You!"

    Wow, I do remember that song. It's been years, thanks for the memory!
