A holiday passed

Halloween and Thanksgiving have passed, and Christmas and New Year’s are fast approaching. While this year has been simultaneously too fast and too slow, it was only a year ago that we were thinking of what the holidays mean.

Holidays are different things to different people. Where in the past it could have been about family, eating, or even shopping, now it’s about health and how to engage with people – family or otherwise. And, yes, still about shopping. (While online sales were high, the number of Americans shopping this year was less than last year, with the average total purchases also being down.)

This year, the holidays seem about patience, and prudence, and preservation.
