Many of us would agree that the Spirit of Christmas, the season of giving, can be typified by the jolly old elf himself – Saint Nicholas or Santa Claus.
I saw the spirit of Santa at Dollar General in Vandalia on Saturday. As I stood in line to check out, I visited a little with the lady directly in front of me, whose cart was fairly loaded. A third woman joined in the conversation and then turned to my new friend, stating, “You have more than $20 in your cart, would you like a coupon for $5 off? I have an extra.”
