      I have to agree with janesix. There is so much greed in the world and it is over materialistic things. The lines, the trampling to get that "hot deal", the fighting, shootings, all over "things". It's so sad, especially when there are so many that die each day because they don't have the basics - food, water, shelter. Breaks my heart.

      Families that can't enjoy being together because of conflicts, personalities and so forth.  So many people get depressed this time of year because of family problems.  They miss out on so much by not forgiving and being judgmental.  Christmas is a time of forgiveness and love honoring our Savior's birthday.

    The Avon orders go down to zero on holidays. Blog views are also sparse. If you ask me, they could abolish holidays.

    I hate that people seem to have forgotten what Christmas is all about. And I hate that it's apparently offensive to some if I wish them a "Merry Christmas". We are supposed to just say Happy Holidays instead. Well my version of Happy Holidays, is MERRY CHRISTMAS! Why should that offend anyone??? If you are for example, Jewish, just respond back with Happy Hanukkah, I wont be offended, thats THEIR version, of Happy Holiday!
