If your inner Cindy Lou Who or Charlie Brown has you feeling down about an overly commercialized Christmas, try charitable shopping on for size. Browse a variety of nonprofit booths at the third annual Alternative Gift Fair and make a donation in a loved one’s name. Past participants have included the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank, Building Goodness Foundation and Literacy Volunteers of Charlottesville/Albemarle.

Our comments system is designed to foster a lively debate of ideas, offer a forum for the exchange of ad hoc information, and solicit honest, respectful feedback about the work we do. We’re glad you’re participating. Here are a few simple rules to follow, which should be relatively straightforward.

1) Don’t call people names or accuse them of things you cannot support.
2) Don’t direct foul language, racial slurs, or offensive terms at other commenters or our staff.
3) Don’t use the discussion on our site for commercial (or shameless personal) promotion.

We reserve the right to remove posts and ban commenters who violate any of the rules listed above, or the spirit of the discussion. We’re trying to create a safe space for a wide range of people to express themselves, and we believe that goal can only be achieved through thoughtful, sensitive editorial control.
