Local Merchant Christmas ShoppingThe Cyber Monday thread got me thinking. Last Sat was a big local business sales day. All small businesses had sales to encourage people to shop locally for Christmas. I am a big fan of shopping in front of my TV at home, but I did go with my daughter to shop in a few stores. Thoroughly enjoyed myself and bought some nice things.
Anyone else participate? If not, please make the effort to stop by a small business in your city at some point.Advertisement

I don't particularly eat a lot of candy, but I told my wife that whenever my father passes, I expect to keep that tiny tradition alive and hope to always have a box of them given to me at Christmas. Tears me up a little thinking about it already lol.
