Stampeding Turkeys

"Too many people spend money they haven't earned, to buy things they don't want, to impress people they don't like." - Will Rogers

The day after Thanksgiving is a big, big...really big, shopping day for millions of people. It is referred to as Black Friday and generally signals the start of the Christmas shopping season.

It will be a day filled with slow moving traffic jams, tired and hungry crowds of people along with credit cards being overspent. It will be fun and also full of frustration. There will be varying stages of stress among people trying to find the perfect deal on the perfect gift.

Stores will be enticing you to overspend and to buy what really isn't needed. The stores will continually try to keep you coming back for more and more. Just be careful to spend in a sensible manner. Do not spend yourself into a painful January credit card bill hangover.

Before you immerse yourself in the fun and madness, take time to remember it is not the amount you spend on a gift.

It is the sincerity of giving which is important.

Remember there will be others in the crowd and be patient, be kind and be willing to understand this should simply be about having fun. Have a great time being among the masses! I will be watching football.

Stay inspired my friends!
