Q: Good morning, Apartment Therapy lovelies! Our family loves Christmas, but each year that passes we buy less and less. We like it that way! We want to start some Christmas traditions that involve giving back to those in need.

We would like to put together a Christmas dinner for a needy family, showing our sons that holidays are not about receiving but about giving. Apartment Therapy readers always have such good suggestions, and I was wondering if they could tell us about their best holiday traditions that involve giving back to others. Thanks!
