Shopping Madness or Simple Pleasure
Well, we had greedy Thursday, Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and finally Cyber Monday. Does anyone have any money left? I know that the economy is bad, but all this push to use every last cent on holiday gifts is crazy.
What ever happened to stringing popcorn and cranberries, and making paper chains for the tree? What about putting time and effort into make a little something for friends and families? Can anything be as touching as a handmade card from a child?
I think that we have lost something valuable in our lives--the simple way of doing things--the peace on earth good will to men.
What are you doing to carry on old traditions?
