If you celebrate Christmas for religious reasons is one thing, but if all you want to do is get presents from people and knuckle under to the crass commericalism of the end of the year retailers trying to stuff everything they couldn’t get rid of all year long, do you really deserve the wishes from everyone to have a merry Christmas? I think not. So I encourage you to re-evaluate your personal choices over this holiday season and if you haven’t been to church in a long time maybe now is a good time to start going again.
Have you ever ordered a cheesecake online? I love cheesecake, and when I was looking online for a gift to send to my brother for his upcoming birthday I came across the website GourmetGiftBaskets.com and saw a wonderfully delicious looking cheesecake sampler that I am really tempted to order for myself! I’ve bookmarked the webpage so that I can go back there at a later time and check out all of the other gift baskets that they offer for sale. Even if I don’t order anything from them, I can get some great ideas from the website for my DIY gift projects.
Do you enjoy shopping online? As consumers find that their spare time is becoming more precious, many of us are turning to shopping online instead of going to the local shopping mall.

Using the Internet to shop has opened up the entire global shopping market to everyone that has an Internet connection. Many companies now offer free shipping, and having the goods delivered to your doorstep, or if it is a gift they offer giftwrapping, a gift card, and delivery to the recipients address. How’s that for convenience?! And best of all, there is no worries about finding a parking spot, or locating your car in the parking lot after a long day at the mall! Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy shopping at the mall from time to time, but sometimes the mall just does not have what I’m looking for, and sometimes I just don’t have the energy to deal with it.
