BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU SAY now during Christmas time. It might also soon be forbidden in Newfoundland to say "MERRY CHRISTMAS." anymore. You should only say "Happy season Greetings like in Quebec.

Our family and extended families have intentionally spent less this Christmas as we have not had increases in our lives created by oil & gas, income or otherwise. We also agree with most economists that this sudden influx of big earnings and big spending will come to an end in NL and interest rates will increase at some point in time. God help those who do not pay attention to these warnings as you will have to pay up for your big spending at some point in time. It's great to be a have province, within reason. We are living in a local economy where most have had it tough for so long, some still do (Port Union, Marystown etc.) and now some (mostly oil and trades employees) have gone wild with this so called new found wealth. I really hope they do not expect the rest of us to pick them up off the ground when all this comes to an abrupt halt and their high rolling ways get flattened. I for one will not and will kindly remind them of this day. Have a merry and centsable Christmas.
