Christmas 2011 — Birth of a New Tradition

From the Editor: 


I found the following (likely U.S. origin) on¬†Facebook, on one of ¬†my friend’s status updates, I shared it on my own status and would like to share it with you… ūüôā The name of the gentleman who penned this wonderful piece of advice escapes me at the moment, (please forgive me and send it along if you know it) but I thank him where ever he is for speaking his mind.¬†

The holiday season is upon us, it’s a fabulous, wonderful time of the year, but stressful too, especially if you have a limited budget.¬†

One of the reasons behind our lack of jobs and therefore lack of funds, may be because so much of our product is made¬†elsewhere. ¬†It is difficult to buy things and keep the economy going when there isn’t any extra money to spend because the jobs aren’t there. ¬†

If we buy from Canadians, if we buy Canadian made products and services we keep Canadians working which equals Canadians spending money in Canada, which in turn equals a strong economy for Canada….

Happy Shopping Everyone… !!

Christmas 2011 — Birth of a New Tradition

As the holidays approach, the giant Asian factories are kicking into high gear to provide¬†Canadians with monstrous piles of cheaply produced goods — merchandise that has been produced at the expense of¬†Canadian labor. This year will be different. This year¬†Canadians will give the gift of genuine concern for other Canadians. There is no longer an excuse that, at gift giving time, nothing can be found that is produced by¬†Canadians hands. Yes there is!

It’s time to think outside the box, people. Who says a gift needs to fit in a shirt box, wrapped in Chinese produced wrapping paper?
Everyone — yes EVERYONE gets their hair cut. How about gift certificates from your local¬†Canadian hair salon or barber?

Gym membership? It’s appropriate for all ages who are thinking about some health improvement.

Who wouldn’t appreciate getting their car detailed? Small,¬†Canadian owned detail shops and car washes would love to sell you a gift certificate or a book of gift certificates.

Are you one of those extravagant givers who think nothing of plonking down the Benjamin’s on a Chinese made flat-screen? Perhaps that grateful gift receiver would like his driveway sealed, or lawn mowed for the summer, or driveway plowed all winter, or games at the local golf course.

There are a bazillion owner-run restaurants — all offering gift certificates. And, if your intended isn’t the fancy eatery sort, what about a half-dozen breakfasts at the local breakfast joint. Remember, folks this isn’t about big National chains — this is about supporting your home town¬†Canadian with their financial lives on the line to keep their doors open.

How many people couldn’t use an oil change for their car, truck or motorcycle, done at a shop run by the¬†Canadian working guy?

Thinking about a heartfelt gift for mom? Mom would LOVE the services of a local cleaning lady for a day.

My computer could use a tune-up, and I KNOW I can find some young guy who is struggling to get his repair business up and running.

OK, you were looking for something more personal. Local crafts people spin their own wool and knit them into scarves. They make jewelry, and pottery and beautiful wooden boxes.

Plan your holiday outings at local, owner operated restaurants and leave your server a nice tip. And, how about going out to see a play or ballet at your hometown theatre.

Musicians need love too, so find a venue showcasing local bands.

Honestly, people, do you REALLY need to buy another ten thousand Chinese lights for the house? When you buy a five dollar string of lights, about fifty cents stays in the community. If you have those kinds of bucks to burn, leave the mailman, trash guy or babysitter a nice BIG tip.

You see, Christmas is no longer about draining¬†Canadian pockets so that¬†China¬†can build another glittering city. Christmas is now about caring about us, encouraging¬†Canadian small businesses to keep plugging away to follow their dreams. And, when we care about other Canadians, we care about our communities, and the benefits come back to us in ways we couldn’t imagine. THIS is the new Canadian¬† Christmas tradition.

Forward this to everyone on your mailing list — post it to discussion groups — throw up a post on Craigslist in the Rants and Raves section in your city — send it to the editor of your local paper and radio stations, and TV news departments. This is a revolution of caring about each other, and isn’t that what Christmas is about?
