I was reading my email on yahoo, and on the home page was this article in conjunction with ABC News. They want to know how we are doing through the holidays.

http://us.lrd.yahoo.com/_ylc=X3oDMTJhc2o5a24wBF9TAzM5ODMwMTA0MQRnc3RhdGUDMQRwb3MDNARzZWMDbndfdG9wc3RvcmllcwRzbGsDdGl0bGUEdGFyA25ld3MueWFob28uY29t/SIG=13it59tkd/EXP=1324927323/**http%3A//news.yahoo.com/blogs/lookout/jobless-over-holidays-tell-yahoo-news-story-144131603.html

Now we want to hear about how being unemployed is affecting your holiday celebrations this year.

Among the things we want to know:

• How are you cutting back or economizing for your holiday? Are you spending less on gifts? Staying home instead of traveling?
• If you have children, how are they reacting to the situation? Do they understand?
• Do the holidays come as a welcome period of rest and relaxation, or do they feel like just one more cause of stress?
• What are some free or low-cost ways to celebrate that you've found and want to share?
• Are there any upsides? Have you found that you've focused less on consumerism, and more on family and friends?
• What are your resolutions for 2012?

Be sure to tell us some basic details about yourself: your age, where you're from, how long you've been out of work, where you were working previously. And include any other information that gives us a sense of your situation and how you're getting by.

Unless you tell us otherwise, we may publish all or part of your email, along with your first name and the first letter of your last name.

We'll pick some of the most interesting responses, and publish them at Yahoo News and on our Down But Not Out Tumblr site, creating a portrait of how America's jobless are handling the holidays four years after the Great Recession officially began.

NO problem...I posted mine as well. I don't think there will any shortage of stories for them to rummage through. It's just a shame any of us have to post stories like these at all. Here's to holding on to some hope we might get a Xmas miracle in the form of H.R.589....Then again I would prob. win the lottery first.
