Professor Steven Gimbel, the chairman of the Philosophy department, was quoted in a York Daily Record article about managing the stress of holiday gifts.
From the York Daily Record:
That's the advice of Steven Gimbel, chairman of the philosophy department at Gettysburg College. His street cred on the holidays stems from a blog post for Psychology Today titled, "Can't Think of a Good Gift? Give a Bad One."
"The culture sets us up with these false expectations - either for us, or our children or our loved ones - that everything has to be perfect," Gimbel said.
Just let the holidays happen, he said, by creating time and space to be with your family and friends.
