img_0156And now it really begins – the official start of the holiday shopping season.

It’s disgusting if you ask me. There are stores here that are open right now, on Thanksgiving, offering special sales. And tomorrow, Black Friday, damn near everywhere will open early and stay open late and if you’re lucky, you can get a $4 DVD player.

But will any of that shit really make you happy?

Instead of embracing the consumer culture that we seem to have gotten sucked into, how about spending time enjoying your family and/or friends? Maybe share a special meal together and then take a nice nap on the sofa. Swap jokes, play card games, look at old photos, take new photos, reminisce about the old days, enjoy the simple act of talking to people you care about.

Love each other. None of us really knows how much time we have left. Enjoy every minute of it while you can.
