I was tired of Black Friday by Wednesday! It’s now Friday and just saw and After Black Friday ad-sheesh! The Holiday race was On! The quest for that “perfect” gift started… Enough! And the companies sending the catalogs! My poor mailman carrying that load and most get recycled-what a waste of trees!
Don’t get me wrong, I love the Holiday Season-it just started in October!
I was in London during the week before the Yule Log and figgy puddings were prepared. The stores didn’t have talking reindeer or a Santa in every corner of the mall! One or two stores had that jolly old fellow…It was civilised! 🙂 I had no mailbox chock-full of pleas for donations…That came, when we retrieved our boxes of mail. I sent postcards Holiday-themed.
The transition to Christmas was hardly a fanfare. It just happened.
I just want to emphasize that the holiday season is meant for sharing with family and friends.
