And that often means a house divided.

Courtney ann jackson has the story of one couple that's found a friendly way to claim bragging rights each year.

The egg bow winner takes the trophy and of course the bragging rights but in the smith household they also take the decorating rights.

"one year i decided to get a little 2-3 foot tree and decorate it all state.

Well, he came home and he was like well that's not fair...i want an ole miss tree.

And i was like..o we can't have that many trees in our house.

We're just having one.

So, that's kind of what started our tradition of a rivalry tree."

As is the case in most divided households, they take their jabs.

"it's a little smack talk leadig up to the game but it'll be a lot....game day.

Game day.

And then, all month long you have the bragging rights, you've got the tree and it's just on.

Because it's up till the first f the year.

So we get to admire it...or hate it."

Melanie learned patience about putting up the tree the hard way.

"one year...state was kicking their tail and about the fourth quarter, i started getting out the state ornaments and decorating and walking around the house all sassy.

And about that time ole miss came back and i started taking my ornaments off.

So, i don't do that anymore."

They've upped the size of the tree but the bet remains the same.

The dawgs and rebs have temporary spots on the tree until that final buzzer.

The winning team's box of ornaments go up directly after the game.

Without the w---one of these boxes... "it goes back in the attic."

"hotty toddy.

Hail state.

Hotty toddy...watch...hotty toddy."

Tis the season to give back... this morning dozens helped make sure people in the friendly city had turkey and all the trimmings this thanksgiving// our stephanie poole has more on what's been a yearly tradition// before this army of volunteers carve their thanksgiving turkeys, they want people in need have one to eat for themselves.

For the past 25 years, the concerned citizens of columbus service group has spent thanksgiving morning cooking hot meals " we're getting meals ready to go out to the elderly,disabled, and just for any person that might need a meal and we're doing it city and county."

Event coordinator annie barry says meals come with turkey, cake, and all the trimmings.

" my day would not be complete if i've known that i've helped someone else, and this is just the start of all our holiday."

This year's goal is to deliver 18-hundred meals....and over 200 people rolled up their sleeves to help.

" i didn't realize we would have this many volunteers but i'm real real proud they will see what our mission is about and that's about helping someone else."

Columbus mayor robert smith says he loves seeing so many people giving back " it's great for the city of columbus to see the citizens within the community not only the city of columbus but the lowndes county area to sacrifice their time, energy, and effort from a volunteer standpoint."

Smith and barry says eventually it'll be up to the young adults to carry this tradition for years to come.

" i'm hoping that they will learn something from this and take this on the to the next generation and in the future here.

All different age groups that are here volunteering their time and assisting so they know it means alot to the senior citizens within the community."

" we will continue barry says there is a committee who is working out details to serve meals during christmas// tupelo's salvation army also hosted a huge feast// thousands of guests enjoyed turkey, dressing, gravy and all of the trimmings inside the newly renovated community center// the food was prepared in the recently updated kitchen// hundreds of volunteers started working early this morning to make sure all of the food was ready for the annual thanksgiving day tradition// "this is the perfect example of people coming together, sharing what they have, sharing that thanksgiving spirit, giving thanks for what they've got, and understanding that when we all put in a little bit, we can all benefit.

And it's amazing to see."

More than four thousand people were fed there today// members of churches from across northeast mississippi made thanksgiving special for nearly a thousand people// wcbi's allie martin tells us how the outreach has continued for more than three decades with volunteers of all ages// katina holland wasn't going to let a leg injury keep her from helping at the thanksgiving day outreach.

"i have learned to be content in whatever state i am in, and you can't let circumstances dictate your life, i won't let anything stop me from doing what god said do and that's being a servant and helping someone else along the way."

Nats kitchen holland, along with other volunteers helped make plate lunches for inmates and staff at area jails, people in the icu waiting room at nmmc, and others who would have gone without.

The thanksgiving day feeding began thirty years ago, when pastor clarence parks, of the temple of compassion and deliverance, was prompted to do something for the homeless on thanksgiving day.

Since then it has grown to include area jails and others in need.

Volunteers say they are truly blessed to be able to help others on this holiday.

"some people really don't have nothing for thanksgiving, can't do nothing, but we trying to give them a great thanksgiving."

"from my heart, i want to let everyone know we love you , we hope you enjoy your thanksgiving, we hope this meal can bring, light, and joy to your heart."

Storms will return to the holiday shopping can be stressful// while you're tracking your budget---so are the stores---and the state.

Courtney ann jackson explains.

You may not think much about that 7% sales tax tacked onto every purchase.

Or even where it's going.

But much of it is bolstering the state's budget.

"we typically see a spike every year after the holiday season in the cash that comes in in january.

So, last year at this time, we did see about a 12 percent increase over the monthly average for the calendar year of 2018."

Once upon a time---mississippi was losing out on some revenue when you logged on and clicked your way to a new purchase.

But as of this year---a portion of the tax collected from your online purchases has a specific destination.

"it's not just about what we purchase locally now because what we are getting thro the online sales is now also being diverted and that will boost the infrastructure spending for cities, counties for roads, bridges and for city water systems. it helped level the playing field for small businesses when the 7 percent was tacked on to online sales like those from amazon.

Still--owner of james and leigh in clinton says they're in constant competition.

"you see big box retailers closing everyday.

So, it's scary to be a small business owner and think it can happen to us.

So, it's very important that when you're thinking about your christmas gifts that you shop local in your community and support those people who want to be part of your community."

And their bottom line is anchored by the holiday season.

"it makes up a huge chunk of our sales each year.

December we should always, almost always hit our mark.

It might be a little under but we always know december is going to be a great month of sales."

The mississippi department of revenue commissioner says he's anticipating a strong holiday season for retail sales and says that's due in part to the strength of our national economy// a lot of folks now gearing up for black friday shopping// tupelo police are taking proactive steps to make sure shoppers are safe throught the night// "operation safe holiday" means you'll see more officers spending more time in shopping areas and parking lots// security will be beefed up in hight foot traffic areas// patrols will be increased to where traffic can sometimes get congested// police also say there are steps you can take to protect yourself, especially when it comes to potential porch pirates// "we ask that the consumer, track their packages so they will know when they will be delivered and if they are not going to be there, have somebody there to pick up those packages, so they are not left unattended on front door step, they are a target for somebody to come by and pick up and haul away."

Specialty units, such as narcotics and school resource officers will have their schedules altered to help address call volume around the holidays// with the holidays in full swing some may not always feel so upbeat.

Tonight how you can fight the "holiday blues" in our health talk with baptist.

For some people feelings of sadness and loneliness during the holidays may go deeper.

Holiday cheer may be difficult to come by if you're facing the emotional pain of loss; such as the loss of a loved one, the loss of a job, divorce, or an extended illness.

This type of loss is called grief.

Some losses are also normal transitions in life; such as a child leaving home for college or getting married.

Nevertheless, they still create a sense of loss.

Even in the best of times, the holidays are stressful, but when there is an added emotional burden, they can be especially difficult.

When there is a loss or change in our lives, our traditions may also change and we find we miss those things that have brought us comfort.

But holidays can also be a time of healing if we open our hearts to new traditions.

It is unrealistic to think we should be happy all of the time.

It is normal and quite healthy to feel sadness.

Let go of unrealistic expectations.

The cranberry sauce doesn't taste quite right?

So what?

Say "no" if y need to.

Do what you can.

Experiencing joy is a choice.

We can choose to become bitter or we can choose to become better.

I'm praying you are able to find joy in the midst of your holiday blues.

Join us next time for health talk with baptist.
