Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa, Happy Holidays. There are lots of ways we’re supposed to say, or not say things these days, but trust me the sentiment is the same. We here at Fratzke Brothers, from the bottom of our hearts, hope you get the opportunity to spend some much deserved time away from work, school, and other responsibilities. Instead of worrying about deadlines, homework, and the such, we hope you can devote your time and attention to the ones you love.
This Holiday season it’s estimated that the average American will spend $935.58 on gifts and other holiday related items.
My First Reaction
“Is Christmas just about spending money anymore? I’m tired of this consumeristic culture we’ve built.”
But Then Ryan Said This
Think about it this way. For every dollar you spend it helps create hundreds of jobs. Someone had to design, build, market, distribute, sell and restock that gift you bought. They all have families. Your gift purchase helps make their holidays possible.
Final Thought: Remember the age old rule; It’s the thought that counts. In today’s “what did you buy for me lately” culture, remember why you’re buying that “thing” for someone. Is it going to make their life easier, better, or more enjoyable? If yes, then it’s worth every penny.
