Budgeting Tips for a Happy Holiday
Consumers spend more money during the Christmas holiday season on presents, travel, and entertaining, than at any other time of the year. Much of that buying is done on credit, at high interest, which can lead to major debt and finance problems for months or even years to come. Learn common sense tips that will help keep your holiday cheer from becoming a financial burden.

Grief and the Holiday Season
The holidays are typically a joyous time, but not everyone will feel like celebrating. Grievers may feel isolated, even in the presence of others, and believe no one understands. Adapting to the absence of someone important in your life is difficult enough. But the first holiday season, with its constant reminders of family, coupled with holiday joy and tradition, can be especially painful. The myth that time heals all wounds isn't true; healing occurs with action. This workshop will provide information on how to actively recover from grief and cope with the holiday season.
