The holidays are upon us.

December 6th, 2010 at 04:14 pm

Here it is, early December, and my holiday shopping is pretty much done. I have a few little gifts to get for a few people I work with (because they're like family) and then wrapping and decorating. Normally I have all of this done well before Thanksgiving. This year, well, I guess I've been busy. We don't even have our tree up!

It's okay - I'm enjoying the time, and am not stressed. I'm looking forward to going to a craft fair next weekend and enjoying looking at everyone's handiwork. I don't plan on making any purchases (well, maybe from the guy that makes the awesome mustards). I hope to get out to a few Christmas concerts too.

Too many people have the wrong idea about this season. It's not about spending, it's about giving. And the giving doesn't have to be money. Give your time, give your energy, give your love. That's what it's all about.

    That is really true. There is a lot more to this season than Black Friday (thank goodness!), and no matter what one believes it can lead to a special time of year with the right attitude. As you are demonstrating, the best insurance for enjoying the season seems to be to lessen the amount of stress surrounding it! Thanks for the reminder...
