Linz’s Friday Musings – December 6th 2019

G’day all

Happy Friday!  Here we go…decent into the Christmas madness!  Christmas parties, catch ups with friends & family… don’t get me wrong, I do love this time of year!

Haven’t had a peek of summer yet here in Victoria, but still hopefully he will show his face soon 🙂

The US on the other hand is descending into Winter and, particularly in the northern states, it’s starting to get mighty cold.  Just coming off their Thanksgiving break, and with Christmas looming, the US also have the added stress of coming into their end of financial year.

I was chatting to our legal team in the US yesterday, they handle all the LLC creation etc, and she was saying that it is just the craziest time of the year.  Once Thanksgiving hits, everyone suddenly realises all the things they need to get done by the end of the financial year, for tax purposes and the pressure hits!

I guess it is hard enough here, with only Christmas to worry about, kinda thankful we have our financial year end, in June!  Whew!

Having said that, I was lucky enough to be in the States last year at this time, and over Thanksgiving was a magical time to be in the US – come to think of it, I wonder who won the Annual Thanksgiving NFL match this year, Chicago Bears or the Detroit Lions? Must remember to google it…

Thanksgiving is a fabulous holiday (not so keen on the whole ‘Black Friday’ theme though) and as the snow starts to fall with Christmas decorations going it, can be quite beautiful.  Check out the very quick video I took last year on the Saturday after Thanksgiving – ill link it below.

Anyway, enough from me…I’ll let you all get back to the Christmas party, ours is next week!

Have a great weekend all and Happy Investing…!!
