Since we've officially entered the "giving season," lots of us are looking for charitable groups and organizations that could really use a helping hand. Given the pandemic and resulting hardships, there's a pretty big list of them asking for help.
Because of this ongoing pandemic, we're doing a lot of things differently this year than we normally do. One of those things is holiday shopping. More people started earlier, and more are shopping online.
In the interests of full disclosure, I must tell you that we have an artificial (or phony, as my two brats...I mean wonderful kids) Christmas tree at our house. And, it's things like this that make me glad we do.
