Take some of the green out of Christmas

(Continued)

Business, like the weather, is local as well as national.

Christmas is what we make of it, and for many, the world around, it is among the holiest of days.

We can't do anything about the weather, but we can about Christmas.

Most of us find a way to do it. We do it for family members and friends.

None do it better than those who give of themselves to others as an outpouring of spirituality.

We, unlike the forecasters, can make more of the Christmas climate then they when we reach from our hearts more than from our wallets.

As for the weather, if our spirits are warm enough, it really doesn't matter.
