Merry Christmas vs. Happy Holidays

 

Christmas Tree

As an educated, southern, long haired, non-theist,liberal, you may be surprised that my rule of thumb is to greet folks with a Merry Christmas.  I decorate my Christmas tree with Christmas ornaments and send out Christmas cards, and struggle with outdoor Christmas lights.

Let’s face it, the greeting “Merry Christmas” is a pretty sure bet in Clarksville.  However, the annual rhetoric about the war on Christmas is ruining what should be a good time. «Read the rest of this article»

Weekly Market Snapshot

Market Commentary by Scott J. Brown, Ph.D., Chief Economist

The economic data were mixed, but stock market participants were generally willing to embrace the good news and ignore the bad. Retail sales rose less than expected in November, but previous figures were revised higher, making it about a wash. The Fed’s regional manufacturing surveys (New York and Philadelphia) were stronger than expected in December, but these surveys don’t measure actual activity.

Industrial production weakened last month and results varied across industries. Initial claims for unemployment insurance benefits fell further, but seasonal adjustment is difficult, making the numbers suspect in December. The Consumer Price Index was flat, up 0.2% ex-food & energy, moderating in recent months after stronger gains earlier this year. Pipeline inflation pressures continued to recede. «Read the rest of this article»

Cranberries Make Holiday Baking Shine

 

Martha White®Nashville, TN – Only a few years ago, cranberries were seldom seen outside the holiday season and even then they were primarily served as sauce with the turkey. Now, sweetened, dried cranberries, along with cranberry juice and sauce, are enjoyed throughout the year. Fresh cranberries are generally available only from September to December, but you can find frozen berries all year round.

“The popularity of baked goods like cranberry muffins, scones and breads has helped us appreciate the unique, tart and tangy flavor of these little berries. Since dried and frozen products are easily accessible, we can include cranberries in our favorite recipes any time,” observed Martha White® baking expert Linda Carman. “However, since the harvesting season for fresh cranberries so perfectly corresponds with our holidays and the tradition is so strong, cranberries will always be a part of holiday celebrations.”
