What’s Your Holiday Spirit?

       With the holiday season upon us, I figured it’s time for an attitude check.  I read the results of a survey that asked people what movie best describes their financial approach to the holidays, and here are the results [along with my interpretation of the message/approach conveyed by each movie]:

  • 31% chose It’s a Wonderful Life [giving freely to others, recognizing that you have touched their lives]
  • 23% chose Surviving Christmas [paying people to enjoy Christmas with you] 
  • 15% chose Jingle All the Way [I’ll take the high road here, and say that it’s about giving when you realize that you already have it]
  • 11% chose Mixed Nuts [I’m not sure here…is it that people wait for a miracle?]
  • And 7% chose Scrooged [Bah Humbug – need I say more?]    

       So what’s your attitude?  That, of course, is a rhetorical question.  Forget the attitude, and remember the spirit of the holidays, regardless of what you observe and celebrate…
