alert everyone in advance that politics would be off
the table at the dinner.) Another person showed a
hesitancy to attend a family dinner since the “head
of the household” had made previous slurs against
the gay community.

The Christmas Tree
    You are no longer a Scrooge if you decorate an
artificial tree. Whether it be less cost, less hassle, or
less clean-up, the trend is nothing new.

Christmas Spending
    While spending continues to increase, there
appears to be less money spent on traditional gifts,
especially clothing. In many cases, parents write
out checks to adult children letting them “buy what
they really want”. There is also a trend for parents
giving sons and daughters “experiences” rather than
material gifts (a spring Disney cruise or a vacation
in Paris, for instance). One of my clients rejoices in
giving each of his grandchildren a bound pad of 100
$1 bills. “Then I take them to the Dollar Store and
watch as they gleefully shop the aisles,” he laughs.
Charitable Gifting
    While current tax laws limit tax deductions, more
of my friends are involving their family in making
major charitable gifts rather than spending on
typical presents. This is especially true for high-in-
come families, which could have a serious economic
impact since the top 10% of income households
account for nearly half of all economic activity.
    Hopefully, one tradition in the Cyclops household
won’t change…Taking time for a peaceful nap…after
eating the coconut cream pie of course!

were completely dazzled by the beauty and
ambience. It was warm, with piped Christmas
music, and every store window was a work of
art. The associates in each store were beau-
tifully dressed, eager to please, and offering
great sales. It seemed like the thing to do to
patronize these palaces of capitalism. We were
ready to spend money.
     But then, things started to go awry. My sister
was looking for sets of pajamas for her grandkids
and they had some sizes but not all. Another
sister had looked for a book for her daughter-in-
law at a little local book store; $26.00. The size
of shoe I wanted was not available, but did I like
this other style?
     We re-grouped on a bench and went—you
guessed it—online. The pajamas were available in
all required sizes with a choice of colors. Shipping
was free. The book was available on Amazon for
$9.00. Shipping was free, would arrive the next day.
I don’t buy shoes on line, but I checked anyway. My
size was available in two colors. Shipping was free.
     So, the lessons were clear: buy online and
get exactly what you want, for much less, or
walk the malls and take what is available, for
more cost. My principles were taking a beating.
I believe in local—food, merchants, resources
– but I also know a bargain when I see one. If I
buy local, I must spend more and compromise.
It’s a toss-up on the restaurants.
