I must be in rural America because I saw a sign advertising Conceal Carry Gift Certificates. Nothing says peace on earth and goodwill towards others like giving your loved one a firearm and the ability to hide it under their shirt.

Loads of cars were returning from the mountains with trees on top of their cars after Thanksgiving. The christmas tree farms offer families the chance to choose their own tree and cut them down.
