Wow! That would really make my day if someone just decided to help me with something simple like putting change in a parking meter. I think this should be highly encouraged throughout all countries because if someone did something nice for you it would encourage you to do something nice for others! :) give it a try everyone!
Make sure that we never take the christ out of Christmas happy holidays is frowned upon where I live because it is the Christmas season. most people are excited to hear Merry Christmas! I know I am. But I do know most commercial companies do know of other celebrations such as Hanukkah so I can see why the term happy holidays is used. All in all it is not the holidays and not all about santa and presents lets take time to believe in what believe and spread all are Christmas spirit!
