This week as the rush is on to buy the latest and greatest items from you local Walmart or Bestbuy . I want to encourage you not to forget the local shops and boutiques that are not only struggling, but they will be lucky if they make it through the next year. For you will not only find joy in doing so but you will gain the respect of your local shop merchants, and possibly even make some new friends. And in shopping the local small stores in your town or City, you will become the ultimate patriot in helping this country to become great again.
Just remember one thing however and that is that Christmas is not about giving gifts, that is only a perk. The one real true meaning of Christmas is celebrating Christ’s birth. And the fact that God loves you so much that He came to earth to be punished and to die for your wrong doings. So Christmas isn’t about the gifts under the tree or really even about family. But rather loving Christ and giving thanks for everything that He has done, everything else beyond this is just a perk.
Thus in recent years my husband and I seeing as we have no children of our own, we like to shop the local stores for any children that might be in need as well as any family we might see during this time and the local stores have just as good of items if not better, than those bought online and imported from China.
This said I want to wish everyone a Very Merry Christmas and a blessed shopping season.
