It's all about merchandising. We have been conditioned to spend our money for the next thing. And we fall into the trap! What I hate is that in January, news stories tell us what dummies we were to spend to much on Christmas that it will take us all year to pay off the credit card.

A woman on my Facebook quite proudly announced that she had all herChristmas decorations packed away the day after Christmas.  I felt sorry for her kids that their season was taken up so short.

A client started blowing up my phone at 6:30am they had put the home search off this fall so I was excited to hear from them and blurted out Merry Christmas.  They are Jewish and I knew that but it was habit embarrasing!

Yes, it is true and most people like that. It creates a warm fuzzy feeling of predictability and attachment.

Yet, do remember, not all celebrate Christmas on 25th:)
