Christmas is a great time to invite someone to church? In a recent poll of 1,000 Americans, LifeWay Research found six out of 10 Americans typically attend church at Christmastime. BUT, among those who don’t attend church services at Christmastime, a majority (57%) say they would likely attend if someone they knew invited them.

Analysts say higher than expected e-commerce sales for Black Friday and Cyber Monday has caused a slowdown in getting your purchases. Shipping orders from Cyber Monday are taking longer to arrive at your doorstep than they did a year ago.

 

Have a drone? New federal law going into effect on December 21 requires mandatory registration for owners of drone type aircraft with the FAA.

 

One of the Hottest gifts of the season now comes with a warning? Amazon has removed some Hooverboards from its online listings.  Hoverboards have been banned from many airlines because of fire hazards from the batteries.
