Black Friday Saves The Week

I appreciate the guest post, Marian Combs

Our family is a sucker for a Black Friday holiday adventure. We love the outing so much that we're always up even before the beginning of the sales. We talk around the kitchen table about our shopping lists, the things we hope to buy for extended family. We don't discuss what we plan to buy for each other though, which would ruin Christmas entirely.

As we head out the door to one of the many stores we've selected as our shopping centers, we feel that we're doing something great together as a family, that we're keeping the spirit of Christmas alive by being together and cooperating in our shopping adventures. One of the best things about the trip is that when we get home, we always have a big round of cocoa and plenty of Christmas shows and music to look forward to on our satellite TV from

It's a great season to get closer to family and shopping is a big part of what makes it great. It's not the amount of money spent that matters, but the amount of thought that goes into making each gift something that the receiver will remember forever. It's cliche but buying from the heart is what we really concentrate on during this wonderfully festive, and warm, season that comes but once a year. It's the specialness of the season that matters.
