This Christmas Give Your Talent and Creativity As Gifts

Rudy Giron: AntiguaDailyPhoto.com &emdash; Serenading The Shoe-shining Boys of Antigua Guatemala

Instead of buying stuff, these two musicians decided to play and sing some Christmas carols for a group of shoe-shiner boys who gave them their total undivided attention. What a wonderful way of showing appreciation and love for others. In my opinion, this is much better than actually buying gifts.

So, this Christmas, if you get a chance, show your loved ones that you care for them by preparing something yourself such as food, a drawing, a hand-made Christmas card with a hand-written note, a printed photograph, et cetera; anything really as long as it is made by you.

Another alternative to buying something is to give something very dear to you such as book, a music album, a baseball card, a sweater, etc. You get the idea.

In other words, let’s make this season about showing our love for our family and friends instead of buying into the consumerism that is norm.

    Happy Christmas Rudy!
    You give us the gifts of your excellent photography skills, your measured good-humoured and informed commentary and the dedication to supply us every day with some aspect of the city we all love. It must not always be easy to do this and perhaps at times, the responses are not always sufficient to keep up the spirit, but I for one find your website keeps my dreams alive and my spirits high. I dream of returning to La Antigua one day and ADP keeps me in the game! Have a great Christmas and a better New Year.

    • Thanks Canche for your continued support. I really appreciate your feedback and commentary.
