Did you have a Merry Christmas? I suppose that answer depends on your point of view.
If you’re a retail corporation then you certainly did. Economists predict a very healthy shopping season, up at least 3-4 % locally and as much as 5% nationally over last year. Not bad for a legal entity that lacks even Ebeneezer’s shred of a soul. I say good for you.
If you’re a soldier spending Christmas night deployed in a volatile area, it is possible you did not. I can only hope you were warm and surrounded by friends. May you be home soon.
