If you picked a star off of the gift tree last week, the gifts are due this Sunday. They should be unwrapped with your star attached to the gift. If you did not have an opportunity to take a star, you can bring a gift card ($5, $10, $15) from a local grocery store or other retailer. The vicar knows of families who could use these.
