Thanksgiving


I was not planning to write this article. Instead, I was going to publish an article about integrity.

Experience Mothers Day In A Whole New Way


Mother's Day is the day when sons, daughters and husbands buy gifts and flowers to recognize the incredible work mom has done raising the children. But some moms are unknowingly cheating themselves out of the full experience of Mother's Day.

Gods Gift to You... Mom


Have you ever thought what you would have done without your Mother? Then why is it Mom's are usually the low woman on the totem pole? God thought enough of us to give us an earthly Guardian Angel and so many times, more than we could truthfully count this is the person we lash out at the most with the excuse it's OK it's only Mom. Thinking of the old cliché "we always hurt the one we the love the most" truly believing that all is forgiven.

Mothers Day is coming-Dont Blow It!


Mother's Day is May 8th. And, you do realize all of the things that the Mom in your life has done for you and your family, right? Then you must know that a bouquet of flowers and card, though very sweet, are not all it takes to make Mother's Day a true holiday.

Gift Wrapping Ideas


If you're tired of your gifts looking like everyone else's, put some creative thought to it. Gifts don't have to just be paper and ribbon that you bought at the store.

Holiday Promotion Tips


Are you ready for Mother's Day? Yes I realize it's still a week or two away, but if you haven't started your Mother's Day promotions yet it might already be too late. I know of one company that has completely sold out of their big Easter product 3 weeks prior to Easter (yes completely sold out!).

Buying Jewelry for Mother's Day or How To Buy The Perfect Gift for Mom Without Getting Ripped Off


Jewelry can be the perfect gift for mom on Mother's Day, but there are pitfalls, especially if you rush at the last minute. Procrastination and a lack of knowledge can be rewarded with overpaying for a piece of jewelry or even worse, being ripped-off.

Gifts: What Do You Give A Couch Potato?


So you know someone who likes to "veg out" in front of the TV and you're looking for a gift for him or her. There are three ways you could go with your gift idea.

Is Buying a Gift for Mom as Difficult for You as it is for Me?


I have walked through a countless number of stores searching for a Mother's Day gift and I always see the same things. A nice blouse, a trinket for the kitchen, or perhaps a bottle of perfume (do they all smell the same to you too, or is it just me?).

Preparing For the Holidays: Ho Ho Ho... or Bah Humbug!


Some of my clients dread the holiday season because it often represents stress, pressure, expectations, guilt, disappointment, pain, loneliness, exhaustion..

Tis The Season


I was listening to one of my favorite radio talk programs today. The topic of the hour was "do you feel burdened by Christmas?" Much to my amazement the host, and the majority of his guests, spent the better part of an hour whining and moaning about the burdensome nature of the holiday season.

Single During the Holidays


Mistletoe. Holiday parties.

Importance of Thanksgiving


Thanksgiving is the most important holiday of the year.Oh, sure, Christmas is grand, and I know it has many, many fans.

Youre How Old?!?


"Well, Happy Birthday! How old are you anyway?""Oh, I'm just 29 ? again."It's a harmless game, denying our age, right? We play sensitive about our age as we get older, as we get further away from birth and closer to death.

Mothers Day, Do You Know What Youre Giving The Woman Who Gave You Life?


Mother's Day, Do you know what you're giving the woman who gave you life?by DeAnna SpencerI decided to deviate from my normal discussion of marketing andadvertising to discuss a major gift giving holiday.Mother's day is coming soon.

Easter Blessings
We are all standing on the threshold of one of the most recognized Christian celebrations of the year. For some people, Easter is merely a long weekend. Schools, on the other hand, usually plan a week-long break for the children.

The Easter Bunny That Got Away
After any holiday the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and myself enjoy taking a day or two off and just relax. We like to sit around and tell stories. My wife usually starts by saying, "Hey, remember the time when... " And she goes on with a story that I had forgotten about. When she's done, we laugh together. Then it's my turn and I begin, "Hey, do you remember the time when... " And I go on and tell a story that she may have forgotten about, I really don't know. When I'm finished, we laugh together as though it was the funniest thing we've heard all day. It's just our way of relaxing and unwinding after a holiday. Holidays are very busy times for us, we like them, but they do take a little bit out of us. It seems that the older we get, the more it takes out of us. I'm not exactly sure what that means. Just don't tell me what it means! We usually go on with our stories until we're too tired to tell a story or to laugh.

Saint Patrick's Day Celebrations Around the World
Over the past 200 years, Irish people have emigrated to all corners of the earth. Some left their native shores by choice but most emigrated to find work. They settled in towns and cities on the five continents, no location being too remote, too wet, too dry, too hot or too cold. It is for that reason that St Patrick's Day is celebrated on March 17th all over the world - just as the festivities wane in one city they begin in the next.

Tips on How to Save Money During Christmas Season
As we all know when it's Christmas time, we Filipinos tend to spend more because we receive bonuses, gifts, and other incentives. I'm not saying that it's not good to spend only when it's needed.

O Christmas Tree
I happened to go into a large retail store recently and was absolutely shocked by the extremely long wall that was stocked from floor to ceiling with artificial Christmas trees. Sizes ranged from those suitable for desktops or apartments all the way up to those that were well over nine feet in height. Choices included spruce, pine, fir and even some that appeared to have freshly fallen snow on the branches.

Life Is Not A Movie
Younger people are shocked when they find out that I was born in the era of "pre-television". I remember the first day that we got the big box that only showed one black and white event at a time with live commercials. O Canada was played at the end of the broadcasting day followed by a test pattern with a soft but steady squeal that could be observed until the following morning.

How to Remember - November 11th
Memory is an interesting faculty of human life. Often I hear clients express concern about not being able to remember everything or recognizing that their memory isn't working as well as it had in the past. My response is to remind them that we are in an age of information and it is not even possible to remember everything.

Life Is Choices - Choose Thanksgiving
It is so easy to focus on all the things that go wrong in a day or in life. Fall is a season that reminds us to focus on the things that are going right - and to give thanks. The snow comes and with it we may experience dangerous driving, frozen locks, inability to find winter clothing, even flooding when the temperatures vary.

Claiming Christmas
It's a shame that American society has traded the foundation of Christmas in order to not offend others by their beliefs. Other traditions stand firm for their beliefs and don't water them down for our benefit. I'm currently not working so thankfully, don't have to worry about it in the workplace this year. I am claiming Christmas and hope that the reader can give me this one day that brings me joy and accept the love in which it is intended.

Christmas Magic Experienced Through English Literature
English literature provides entertainment for people of all ages, and Christmas time is an excellent holiday in which families can share excellent old classics as well as new stories. There's no better way to open up one's imagination than with an excellent story on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day. People used to sit around the fireplace and tell stories about Santa Claus or about the Christmas spirits who visited Ebenezer Scrooge in A Christmas Carol (1843) by Charles Dickens. It was a time when people even made up their own stories stories. Sharing a good story, analyzing its meaning, and reacting to it as a group effort created bonds between people, connections that prevailed and that were passed down from one generation to the next. Christmas stories will brighten your holidays. Stories by great authors such as Charles Dickens, can help create bonds with friends and colleagues alike. Long live the art of storytelling at Christmas time!

Behold, the Christmas Grinch Cometh
I never have to look at the calendar to know when the Christmas holiday season is approaching. As soon as I lay down my fork on Thanksgiving Day, the battle drums begin to roll. Somebody, who apparently does not have much of a life, takes a pot shot at the Christmas holiday. You would think, from some of their comments, the Christmas holiday was the greatest conspiracy in all of human history. According to these protesters, the very word "Christmas," offends them to no degree. They forbid people to say cheerfully, "Merry Christmas," as if those words in and of themselves would create the ultimate damage to the person hearing them. To placate these values-challenged patrons, some businesses have chosen not to put the word "Christmas," anywhere near their business, replacing that offensive word with the words, "Happy Holiday." Even employees are prohibited wishing customers a Merry Christmas, but rather a "Happy Holiday." This, according to the all-wise Christmas Grinch, is more acceptable than simply saying, "Merry Christmas."

Santa Claus Hasn't Received My Letter Yet
In first grade, our teacher asked us to pen a letter to Santa for Christmas. She asked us, "Name one present you would like Santa to bring you for Christmas." Then we were to write a letter to Santa, who, according to her, lived at the North Pole, and tell him what we wanted for Christmas and why we wanted it. Then, we put it in an envelope and she mailed it to the North Pole. At the time, I thought my teacher had a connection with Santa Claus. She said so many nice things about him that she must have known him personally. Accordingly, I thought a letter delivered to him by my teacher would have credit.
