On this Black Friday, I wanted to offer up a bit of perspective.
Gifts Are Not The Point Of The Season
We live in a commerical society. The holidays have been coopted from a time when we love and care for our fellow (wo)man to a time when we spend ourselves ragged and hope we can catch up next year. This year, I wanted to remind you that the gift are not the point of the season. Sure, our economy could use the boost of a good holiday purchase binge, but is it really going to offer you and yours happiness in the coming year? Or would having a bit of a financial cushion actually offer more peace of mind?
