As we draw closer to Yule &/or Christmas, life becomes crazier. We are bombarded with ads for what we have to buy to make our loved ones happy. Our society has become obsessed with following what some suit says at age 5 a child should have his own mega gaming system and smart phone. I’m sorry, but this is not what I consider a worthwhile pastime for preparing for the season. I would rather have family and friends visit on the day with empty hands and stomachs so we can enjoy food and company sharing the joy of the season.
