Tis the season for badgering Evites
- It's nice that during the holiday season we get more party invitations, but I get a little fed up with Evites that constantly remind me of the party or ask if I'm coming repeatedly. In the days of personal party invitations, people would never have pestered their party guests with constant demands for RSVPs in person or by phone.

Holiday Season Gripe
- My biggest complaint about the season is that it's so commercialized we don't even have time to enjoy Thanksgiving because merchants are pushing Christmas. Now, it's even gotten to where they're bypassing Halloween as well. Where will it end? I realize this is a big shopping season, but wouldn't it be nice to have this time of year to just enjoy our families, traditions and time together at a more leisurely pace?
