Hello good people, it’s Cyber Monday. The big day for online shopping during this holiday season. This year everyday has been “Cyber Monday” considering many folks are taking it safe and avoiding the malls and shops due to the Coronavirus. No matter how you are shopping I hope you get a great deal or two.
And if you aren’t shopping have a great day and carry on.
My church, St. Peter’s Episcopal Church observed this first Sunday of Advent this morning with my priest Fr. Quinn celebrating mass. Advent is an observance of awaiting the Christ child in the Christian tradition. A candle is lit every Sunday and on Christmas Eve before Christmas day.
I love seeing women shatter glass ceilings. It is the 21st century but most of those ceilings should have been shattered in the previous century. From politics to sports to entertainment to business to religion, women should take the lead in many things. This man isn’t threatened by the advancements of women, the world needs more representation in all areas of life. Sisters do it for yourselves and for the world.
Today is traditionally one of the busiest and most profitable days of the holiday retail season. Like Thanksgiving, Black Friday is going to look different. Not as many will be rushing to retailers, but more online buying. However, there are people who will brave the conditions of the day to get those deals. I predict that many will just stay close to home with their computers and credit cards at the ready. No matter what, safety first everyone.
No matter what you are looking for may the odds be ever in your favor. Happy deal hunting. Also just have a great Friday if you aren’t all into this stuff.
It’s Thanksgiving day here in America. A day set aside for us to give thanks for what we have. It’s a very different Thanksgiving in the world of COVID-19 we live in. There are many reasons to have a grateful heart among the tragedy and turmoil. Be mindful of those we have lost in these months and those who are working and serving on a day where being with loved ones is the rule of the holiday.
My hope is that you are gathered in small groups around a table enjoying a meal that will bring you together or virtually connecting on Zoom or an old fashioned phone call.
To all around the world may you have a spirit of thanks on this day. Grace and peace and love to all.
