After working (or rather, writing) diligently through November, in order to complete my entry for the Nanowrimo Contest (50,000 words), I am back!
Christmas is a-coming and for weeks now, preparations have been taking place in stores! Gotta get the money rolling in; as if enough is not taken from us already!
It is no wonder folk become stressed – Thanksgiving has barely ended when Christmas spending is thrust down our throats!
It is not the amount of preparation that has to be done, that causes the stress; – it’s the constant advertising to ‘buy now before it’s gone’ or the pressure to make sure your loved one is given exactly what they want, so ‘shop early for the best selection’!
What about giving a simple ‘what they NEED’ gift! There’s a lifetime guarantee too!
