My Viewpoint – December 2018

Here we are at the end of another year and we should be looking forward to the arrival of the big man in the red suit. Meanwhile we have just emerged from Black – yes Black Friday and what a crazy Friday that turned out to be. I must say that I don’t really see the significance of Black Friday because the idea to have real bargains, 50% or more off a product. I mean that is how it is all over the world. Yet in South Africa we have specials, we have a few with 20 or 30% off or, if you spend R650.00 you get more of a percentage off- that is not Black Friday and yet you have people storming the shops in their droves. It is crazy, just to get a few Rands discounted. Some of the “discounted Black Friday” items were more than what they are when they are on ordinary special. I guess one step ahead and three back is the motto.

Let us rather look towards the magical time of the year that is approaching. It is the time when we get to have time off, where we spend the time with our families and our friends and we enjoy the outdoors.

I hope you are preparing to put your tree up and don’t forget to look to the sky to see those reindeer Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Donner, Dasher, Blitzen, Comet and Rudolph.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all.
