Just one comment/correction.  They are not "holiday" trees they are Christmas Trees.  To call them by any other name is insensitive and disrespectful to Christians. Otherwise - good article.

Exactly what is it in the water you people are drinking or smoking?  It is a "Christmas tree" not some democratic  humanistic atheistic liberal double speak.

I've said it before here, for years; invest in tangible assests = apartment buildings, small nice unassuming places that you can pick up and make a monthly payment on, like an average deduction to a 401K or whatever; and make a ten year plan, have it paid for it ten years, whatever fits your hard working dollar budget; when you reach 50, 60, whenever your target date is the goal is to have them paid off. These are investments you can walk up and touch, you can even live in them. Stocks and other such investments are phantoms, who really knows what the hell they are and who's maniputaling them. I'm just an average work-my-****-off Joe and turning 60 tomorrow, and I am retiring and will have a comforatble income from MY apartment buildings, not a Trump income but very comfortable. Peace all, be good, think good thoughts, stay healthy, and F'the man !

Christmas Tree!! Wall Street doesn't get it. They are killing the goose that laid the golden eggs. "Holiday" means nothing, "Christmas" means giving, loving, sharing, and caring which ultimately translates into willingness to spend. I purposely look for shops and advertisers that are willing to call Christmas, Christmas.

I find it interesting that the people that hate or distrust the stock market and  miss the opportunities it provides because of risk aversion or unwillingness to learn, usually are the same people that want income/wealth equality, and every handout the government can provide, including government pensions.

Bottom line, they want others to take the risk but they want a share of the benefit. Leeches come in numerous forms don't they. But if your savings strategy is brick and mortar, bonds, CD's or a savings account that is okay, but it certainly does not give you the right to condemn those that care to invest in or work in the market any more than if your belief is Protestant to condemn Catholics or Buddhists.

If you don't like it, stay out. I think state lotteries are a scam and unfair tax on the poor, but I don't condemn those that play.

Pick something you like, know about, and is affordable. Then call the maintenance guys at their office and ask them, "whats the word around the company."  Much better plan than listening to these guys.

To encourage people to invest in the market when we have no idea what those fools in congress will cook up around January 15 and February 7 is the tool of the worst stock manipulators.  These greedy degenerates are painting a rosy picture of how rich we are all going to get knowing full well that many existing factors could cause the market to crash, not the least of which is the fed.  I'm staying out until that garbage is settled.  Call me a coward if you want, and I may miss a couple of months of investment gains, but when the storm blows over I'll still have my capital.

 A.    Roman pagans first introduced the holiday of Saturnalia, a week long period of lawlessness celebrated between December 17-25.  During this period, Roman courts were closed, and Roman law dictated that no one could be punished for damaging property or injuring people during the week-long celebration.  The festival began when Roman authorities chose “an enemy of the Roman people” to represent the “Lord of Misrule.”  Each Roman community selected a victim whom they forced to indulge in food and other physical pleasures throughout the week.  At the festival’s conclusion, December 25th, Roman authorities believed they were destroying the forces of darkness by brutally murdering this innocent man or woman.

B. In the 4th century CE, Christianity imported the Saturnalia festival hoping to take the pagan masses in with it.  Christian leaders succeeded in converting to Christianity large numbers of pagans by promising them that they could continue to celebrate the Saturnalia as Christians

C. The problem was that there was nothing intrinsically Christian about Saturnalia. To remedy this, these Christian leaders named Saturnalia’s concluding day, December 25th, to be Jesus’ birthday.

D. The Origin of Christmas Tree
Just as early Christians recruited Roman pagans by associating Christmas with the Saturnalia, so too worshipers of the Asheira cult and its offshoots were recruited by the Church sanctioning “Christmas Trees”.  Pagans had long worshiped trees in the forest, or brought them into their homes and decorated them, and this observance was adopted and painted with a Christian veneer by the Church

[BRIEFING.COM] The Nasdaq Composite (+0.5%) and S&P 500 (+0.2%) posted modest gains on Thursday, but not before enduring a morning dip into the red, which took place in reaction to reports indicating Russia has commenced military exercises on the Ukrainian border.

The news from Europe knocked the key indices from their early highs, while giving a boost to safe-haven assets like gold futures (+0.5% to $1290.80/ozt), Treasuries (10-yr yield -1 bps to 2.69%), and the Japanese yen (102.30 ... More
