There still isn't quite enough snow to build a snowman of our own.
The holidays shouldn't be as commercialized as they are. Halloween and Thanksgiving should get their fair share of attention. The retail side of Christmas should wait until Dec. 1. I detest having decorated trees in the grocery stores before the jack-o-lanterns are taken off the porch and carols in the elevators before Thanksgiving arrives.
Holidays should be about quality time with your family, time away from the tedium of your job. Time to enjoy life and reconnect with your beliefs and the important things that make us the special individuals we are.
Make time to enjoy your family. They are the best bargain you'll ever find.
