Happy Boxing Day #BoxingDay

Boxing Day is a holiday celebrated after Christmas Day, occurring on the second day of Christmastide. Though it originated as a holiday to give gifts to the poor, today Boxing Day is primarily known as a shopping holiday.

To all my friends celebrating may it be a continuation of warm cheer and giving to those in need as well as the ones you love.

It’s Black Friday, Happy Bargain Hunting #BlackFriday

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.

The Gift Of Jewelry

One thing I have learned over the years is that jewelry is a big thing during the holidays. If you are a man you see commercials driving home the point that if you don’t get your special someone some really expensive jewelry you should feel horrible.


I think it’s a ploy to make people spend money they really don’t have. Well that could be said for any gift. The cheapest gifts can set you back a lot of dough. However jewelry seems to glow and enchants the eye. In the end you want to make your mate feel happy. I haven’t fallen for that pressure. My wife has simple tastes which is nice. It’s the thought that counts, right.
