Black Friday: What Were they Thinking?

     I've really got to wonder what has happened to our holiday season.  It is nothing about time with friends and family and all about spending lots of money on meaningless stuff.   What has happened to a great Thanksgiving dinner and an evening at home with the family watching a football game or playing cards.  
     Nope, it is gobble down the dinner so we can rush to the Black Friday sales.   I really feel that the country is loosing something very important about the holidays.  It is not about how much money that you spend, it is about being with people and sharing, 

     Give the seasons a second thought this year and see if you can find more to it than just hustling out to the store and grabbing up all of the specials ahead of your neighbor and miss the real meaning of the holidays.   ;o)
