As quickly as they came, the holidays we love so much are gone for another year. Now we can settle down for that long winter’s nap — sort of — until spring arrives in 72 days.
The days are passing quickly and soon we will be celebrating Christmas, the birth of our Lord and Savior. But as we draw close to Christmas morning, how will we see others preparing for that gift, and more importantly, how will others see us preparing for Christmas?
In less than a week, we should be all sitting down with our families to give thanks for everything we have. In a month, we will be celebrating the joys of the Christmas Holidays and preparing for the new year! While these are all great milestones to enjoy with your family and friends, we all…
