Are you finished shopping yet? Or are you just getting started today? We started and finished our Christmas shopping yesterday. Yes, you can wait until the last Sunday before Christmas to shop but it is insane out there. I wish that Christmas could be a celebration of Jesus Christ and family and not about gifts purchased for one another. That is why thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays, yes we eat too much but it is not about materialism. If you are going out into the mayhem just know it is overcrowded with purchases that have little to with the reason for Christmas. Bring a smile, patience and love with you to each store and bring the reason for the season into other’s lives at this time of year.
