Thank you John I will follow the link and sign.
I agree Booklover! Consumerism!

My wife and I haven't spent one Christmas together in 20 yrs.  She chooses to work (Double time +Holiday pay).  I am behind her 100%!  She works in a nursing home in activities (She gets to play)!!  Spending time w/ the elderly trumps ANY materialistic crap!  Why celebrate when they all converge on each other and the advertising gets so confusing, you loose interest and the result is just another day!  Besides our favorite holiday is Halloween!!  We enjoy scaring people!!

My favorite holiday is Halloween too!! I like the fun of it.

When it reaches Black Halloween, at least the name will be more appropriate.
