So today is "Black Friday"! The one day of the year when businesses get out of the red and into the "black" they say. Do you spend the day rushing around and getting the "best" deal of the century? Or do you relax and skip out on all the hustle and bustle.
I personally choose to skip out on the hustle and bustle. I really don't like the pushing and shoving and I usually have all my shopping done by "Black Friday". But "Black Friday" or not, shopping or not, the day after Thanksgiving officially ushers in the Christmas holiday. Perhaps, retailers start in July, August or September setting out their merchandise, but that's not really what brings in the Christmas season.
I love to enjoy every season, individually. Thanksgiving is my favorite...until Christmas. Then, Christmas is definitely my favorite! Merry Christmas!
This "Black Friday" don't let the real meaning of Christmas slip by you. As cliche' as this may sound, Jesus is the reason for the season. He really is what CHRISTmas is all about. This year let the JOY of the season fill you and spill out of you!
