It’s hard to believe, Thanksgiving, one of the most favored holidays of the year, is five days away. Unfortunately, like everything else, the holiday has changed and overshadowed by Black Friday or as I prefer to call it – madness.
Thanksgiving used to be a time for giving thanks, enjoying good food, and spending time with family and friends. Now, it’s become a time to eat and run. Personally, I long for the good old days, and I don’t think I’m alone. Just this week a saw a commercial from (Marshalls, TJ Maxx, and Home Goods) and given the last few years, it’s not what you would expect. Check out, Bring Back the Holidays, it will warm your heart.
The holidays don’t have to be a prelude to madness. With the internet, we can simplify things and shop from home – online. To make it even easier, for those of you who have a writer on your list, I have a few gift suggestions.
Sheila’s Holiday Gift Suggestions:
1- Subscriptions to favorite magazines are always a great gift. Check out some of my favorite ones from last year.
3- Memberships to courses or writing resources, like One Stop for Writers, or a gift certificate for a writing course.
5- A gift that doesn’t coast a dime. Time with those you love.
