If you survived the craziness of the black Friday sales you did well. The financially restrained Pastor Ian Sweeney found himself astonished at how people were desperate to get their hands on televisions -even to the point that people began fighting and cursing one another. That hardly seems to be the spirit of Christmas. Perhaps there is a better way to share that spirit.
