Word on the street . . . on the season of goodwill

Pauline Robinson: “Give people baskets of fruit. Fruit is healthier than lollies so we’re thinking of our whanau and their hauora (health). And give people hugs.”
Mereana Quinn: “Give to others who can’t afford a Christmas.”
David Smail: I’ve always been a big fan of the ‘pay it forward’ concept. Give something without expecting something in return.”
Awhi Tungatt: “Give money to charity.”
Laine Higham: “Have someone over for Christmas dinner, especially someone who may otherwise be on their own.”
Oneroa Hata: “Last Christmas we bought breakfast for a man at Verve Cafe.”
Ruth Tepairi: “Give the biggest hugs and loves. If you see someone a bit sad, share a bit of aroha (love). Go up and talk to them.”
Margot McLean: “Give presents to children in need. Our office is collecting gifts this year.”
Karyn Egan: “Spending time with each other — quality time.”
Shy Johnson: “Give a gift, kai or your time to the Ka Pai Kaiti Christmas dinner for whanau who may not otherwise be able to have Christmas.”
