Is Consumerism Overshadowing Christmas? December 15, 2017 by Staff

According to the National Retail Federation, projected holiday retail sales in November and December will total $678.75 billion. That's a lot of cookie dough! When our spending gets out of hand, we can easily lose sight of what Christmas is about. Instead of mindless purchasing, why not make a financial donation to a charitable organization? The Salvation Army, Angel Tree, and local soup kitchens are all worthy of your support. Or how about volunteering as a bell-ringer for the Salvation Army or helping another charitable cause with your time? Maybe you could adopt a family in need and provide a Christmas meal and gifts for their children? If you're interested in recapturing the Christmas spirit, look for ways to help those less fortunate. Do this, and it might be the most joyful and rewarding Christmas you'll ever have. Merry Christmas!
