Beyond Black Friday


“He puzzled and puzzled till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn’t before. Maybe Christmas, he thought… doesn’t come from a store. Maybe Christmas, perhaps… means a little bit more!”

It is no surprise that I adore The Grinch and also Dr. Seuss.  To the point that my boys won’t even watch it with me anymore, because I talk right along with Boris Karloff.  I sing the songs and just know it by heart.  It never gets old.

After the craziness of “Black Friday” and “Cyber Monday” maybe more people need to take a page out of the book and realize that Christmas doesn’t come from a store.  Christmas should be about time to spend together, not about what we spend on each other. 

I love the fact that my family will be together Christmas morning to open gifts.  We will have dinner together we will laugh and joke together.  Something that a lot of people don’t get to do.  For that I am thankful.
