Carrie is back this week with the final installment of the small business holiday stories.

Carrie describes the immense joy she felt when she realized the shop had met its holiday goals before she left town for Christmas. What follows are a few bad decisions, a bad Christmas gift, absent traditions, a panic attack, and, ultimately, gratitude.
