The feeling of Christmas

“City sidewalks. Busy sidewalks.
Dressed in holiday style
In the air there’s a feeling of Christmas”

So goes the opening lines of the Christmas song “Silver Bells”.

I love that for one day each year people are (mostly) kind to each other.
I love the carols and songs that play in the stores as people shop for food and gifts for the day.
There is so much to love about this time of year.

The most efficient way to save money is to pay the entire balance due on your credit card at the end of the month. Paying the entire balance negates the interest rate charged on your current card.
