Clean and Sober Christmas

Our “Sober for the Holidays” Classic Re-Posted

clean & sober Christmas (2)

I’m dreaming of a clean and sober Christmas just like the ones I used to know

Where I don’t DUI and the stars shine so big and bright for you and I

Where the treetops glisten and my family can’t wait to love and listen

I’m dreaming of a program where the 12 steppers listen to a wise sober older that go on a glisten

Where my eyes are a twinkle and I don’t go tweaking to a crinkle and a wrinkle

Where we all can share what is so dear in the Hanukkah flair and holiday cheer

Where every holiday card I write is for 24’ more to shine so bright just like the ones I used to know

I’m dreaming of being sober and not falling over… where the treetops glisten and I don’t go slippin and sniffin

Where children shout with joy to get a new toy and sober bell rides make for warm family nights

I’m dreaming of a clean and sober Christmas with every holiday card I write

may your days be sober… nights be merry… bringing you all a miracle fairy

We thank you for being you and many blessings to You… Just for Today and everyday from your friends at – My 12 Step Store

Great Gift Guide for Giving by Christmas

During a time when so many have experienced some combination of excitement, joy, gratitude, rage, fear and frustration in finding holiday gifts for other, it seems appropriate to pause and ask; Where did the practice and tradition of giving Christmas and holiday presents come from?

There doesn’t seem to be any real or easy answer. We believe or maybe we like to think. Giving a gift at Christmas time is an expression of gratitude of your own life and the life your giving a gift to. Maybe your grateful for the time you share together, respect for how your connected in life or how you have made a difference in each other’s life. Maybe it’s all the above or simply because you can and because you want to. Sometimes it’s also because someone gives you a gift and want to give them something back.
