Having a true season of joy is a tall order for some people during the holidays, who may envision a time filled with too much to do, interactions with unpleasant family members and a season focused on things rather than experiences.
Ahhh, it’s that time of the year again. The holiday traditions take us home for the holidays to reunite with parents, siblings, cousins and old friends.

Looking for a little buddy to hang out with, go on walks, go to the Farmer’s Market, or just sit around and read the Ahwatukee Foothills News? Well, Chris is your guy! He is about the best little dog a person could want. He gets along well with other dogs, doesn’t mind little kids hanging all over him, and would possibly be OK with a feline sibling or two. Chris is a 5-year-old male Jack Russell Terrier mix who came to the Arizona Animal Welfare League because his owner fell on hard times and was unable to keep him any longer, not because of any other reason other than he no longer had a house to live in and wanted a better life for Chris than living on the streets. Chris is an absolute staff favorite and currently resides in the dog adoption manager’s office because she cannot bear to put him in a kennel because he’s just that perfect.

My assignment: In 700 words or less, I’m supposed to keep you and your money safe while you’re out buying for the holidays. How about I do it in 17 words and two punctuation points: do not buy gift cards, do not shop online, and do not get talked into extended warranties!
Thanksgiving. A holiday started long ago that currently finds its way into homes of pumpkin scents, laced around glazed turkeys, cranberry sauce, and good-ole mashed potatoes. Yet the Thanksgiving holiday is not just seen as a time to celebrate that we all love to eat, and the food coma we eventually fall into afterwards, but a day to stop and think about what we are truly thankful for.
