How Do Holiday Sales Look?

9 minutes

How does your Thanksgiving look? It's the number one topic of conversation around the Reavill household right now.

Here in Pennsylvania, the Governor has recently implemented new more restrictive guidelines for social distancing. And the result for us, has been that my Wife's rather large family has decided to break up into smaller, more manageable groups.

This certainly makes the job of cooking easier. And with Zoom, or whatever is the latest communications “app,” I'm sure that the ribald conversation will flow, although this time from miles away.

Thanksgiving is a time when we give thanks to our Creator for the multiple blessings bestowed upon us throughout the year.

It is also the time that the retailers around the nation look for expanded sales as people prepare for the holidays.
