Last week, my wife was worried about hitting traffic going into work.
I said “But it is Saturday.”
Her reply ” Yeah, but Santa is arriving at the Mall and the traffic can be really bad. ”
The date: November 10th 2007. 45 shopping days till you feel guilty for not spending every last cent you can.
I HATE the fact that a station here has already gone over the “all X-mas all the time” music, and I have not had a chance to put myself on the outside of a pile of Thanksgiving Day eats. Or seen shoveled a single snowflake.
Heck, some stores were advertising “Get your shopping early” specials right around Halloween. ARRRRRGH!
Here I am a traditionalist. I do not want to multi-task holidays. Chirstmas season begins with you rising at 4 am to catch the doorbuster day after Turkey Day savings.
And not a minute before.
Thank you for your time.
