Body paragraph

Unplug the Christmas Machine by Jo Robinson and Jean C. Staeheli. This book grew out of workshops the authors conducted for people who were feeling disappointed and stressed about the holidays.  It offers a thorough look at assumptions many people have about the holiday season, a brief history of commercialism associated with the holidays, exercises to help you identify your own family’s true wishes, and inspiration for making changes.
