In New York Fox News lights their huge Christmas tree and with all the lights and decorations I think it is one of the most beautiful Christmas trees I have ever seen. Fox News always does it right and it sure does bring in the spirit. This Christmas is going to be bigger than last year and we are probably going to run out of stuff to buy for Christmas since their is a possibility of a railroad strike, but we won’t know till approximately 2 weeks from now. With inflation running at such an extreme we will be looking to buy less, but I am going to buy nice presents with my wife on the weekend after Thanksgiving.
For transportation woes, the airline industry is reporting a shortage of pilots, and the cost is going to be higher for the same airline ticket for this holiday from last year, and mail is expected to be slower, while supply chain to be slower due to the shipping industry’s back log.
