What Do You Do At Holiday Time?

In the November-December issue of Scouting magazine, there is a story about a Webelos Scout named Daniel Simon of Pack 381, Buffalo Grove, Illinois.  Daniel earned a $750 gift certificate, and instead of spending the money on himself, he filled seven shopping carts with toys for other children who might not get anything that holiday season.  It was a fine act of kindness and generosity.  For Daniel, the Cub Scout Promise and the Law of the Pack aren’t just words; they represent a way of life.  Wouldn’t it be a great holiday tradition if we all followed Daniel’s example and performed some special good turn for someone in need?  That would bring a lot of joy to the people we served.  It would also bring a lot of joy to us, knowing that we had done something to make someone’s life a little better.  When you think about the question, “What do you do at holiday time?” also think about what you can do to serve others at holiday time.  What better way to build good memories that will last forever?
