Enjoying Thanksgiving Weekend!
Happy Thanksgiving to all!
There are a lot of things that I look forward to during Thanksgiving. There’s a pickup football game with friends, helping prepare dinner and, of course, watching football on tv. Of course, if the turkey tryptophan doesn’t put you to sleep by early evening, watching the Eagles will.
Another one of my favorite Thanksgiving weekend traditions is to go out Christmas shopping on Black Friday. This year, people seem to be in less of a spending mood due to, of course, “the economy.” It seems whenever something is wrong these days, it’s all attributable to “the economy.”
As young professionals (some of whom may even have some disposable income), we should try to do our part to help out and still do our share of holiday shopping. Certainly, there’s sacrifices that may need to be made, and perhaps, we need to cut down on the amount we spend. But we shouldn’t cancel holiday shopping because of “the economy.”
Enjoy the holidays!
