It may not be Christmas for all of us, but how much is there to deal with by everyone?
News reports keep showing how much online shopping has been done this season, almost 20% more than last year. With billions of dollars spent online alone, it is hard to imagine how much has been spent in all.
Given the number of presents that are to be given to the children and grandchildren in most families, there are some incredible stories of personal giving shared on television. With some of the things that both charities and individuals are able to do for others, there is a great deal of value that is seen in the community for the holidays.
While not everyone celebrates Christmas, there is much to see for the holiday that closes out the end of the year. After all of the shootings and other violence that have occurred throughout the year, it is amazing to see such gifts of thought and caring as well.
With groups that provide shoes and coats for kids, along with a single business owner who walks around the city to give cash to those in need, there is much to see in the presence of giving and love. I know that I would love to wish everyone a Merry Christmas, or at least a Happy Holidays, as well as the improvement of the 2019 year!
