The key to holiday happiness
Just as the end-of-year celebrations speed into sight, get ready for your happiest holiday season yet – all thanks to a little generosity!
It has been proven: showing generosity to others makes us happy. It’s as if we can capture the happiness hormones our near and dear send our way.

It’s an unparalleled act of kindness, yet we seem to smile less and less. As well as saying thank you why not smile to the salesperson who has helped you find that perfect gift to slip under the tree?

Mealtimes with family can make for a wonderful shared moment, if not just for the time spent putting together the meal, but for everything that goes along with it to gather everyone around the table for one convivial moment.
