Remember Thanksgiving is First and the Meaning of Christmas

Are you ready for Christmas?

Christmas is my favorite holiday, but somehow, the meaning of the season has been lost.

It has become so commercialized. Fall decorations were barely on the shelves in stores then I blinked and their were Christmas decorations next to them.

All of this before Halloween was over.

Every business is after our dollars. The commercials encouraging people to spend, spend and spend some more. Every year, there is a projected amount of money the businesses believe every consumer will spend. It shocks me when I see the $$$$ signs. I know I won’t be spending that much money. I could go on and on about the money spent, but I think you understand the point I am making.

The real meaning of Christmas: It is the annual celebration of Christ’s birth.

Please keep this in mind this Christmas and for years to come. Giving gifts is one thing, but focusing on shopping and going into debt is quite another.

Who remembers Thanksgiving?

That is my other complaint.

Every year, Christmas is in the stores. People go shopping on Thanksgiving! I find that appalling. People would rather shop than be with family. The holiday is called Thanksgiving, not Shopping.

Money doesn’t buy happiness. You can’t take it with you.

The love of family and friends and the blessings life has given you will stay in your heart  and in your soul now and forever.
