Happy Thanksgiving!really means it’s time to start decorating for Christmas. The turkey and dressing haven't even settled in our stomachs before we find ourselves in the attic pulling out boxes of fragile ornaments and strings of lights and garland. The radio has been playing Karen Carpenter's Christmas songs since Halloween to get us into the holiday spirit. But now is the time that a really important decision has to be made. Do we take the easy route and put up the artificial tree with the lights already strung or do we shell out a hundred bucks for the real deal that will probably start losing its needles by December 15th? Half the household (better known as the kids) wants a real tree because of the familiar Christmas tree scent and, to be honest, it often looks a lot better. The other half (that would be my husband and me) don’t want to spend the money or fool with getting the tree to stand up straight. Maybe we’ll go with the fake one, and buy a can of pine scented room spray. Next we begin preparing for our company, purchasing the perfect presents, and planning the Christmas Eve, Christmas morning, and Christmas dinner menus. In other words we’re exhausted and broke. How can we alleviate some of this stress without calling off all of the Christmas celebrations? Grab a glass of eggnog (maybe with an extra shot of nog) and scroll through these quotes by some of our iconic comedians and celebrities for a reminder to slow down, laugh, and remember the reason for the season.

Christmas Shopping: Wouldn’t it be wonderful to find one gift that you didn’t have to dust, that had to be used right away, that was practical, fit everyone, was personal and would be remembered for a long time? I penciled in “Gift certificate for a flu shot.”
Santa Clause had the right idea. Visit people once a year.
