The Holidays Are Here! :)

Yay for the holidays! Sure, they can be a pain in the buttinski sometimes, but there's a special feeling at this time of year, isn't there? My sister and brother-in-law helped me put my tree together and we decorated, and I finished putting up the Christmas decorations inside and out today. My cards are mailed and my presents are bought, though a few will have to be bought closer to the holiday because I plan to get my sis some good chocolate and don't want to purchase it too early.

We had a good Thanksgiving, eating turkey, gravy, green beans almondine, butternut squash, mashed potatoes, stuffing, salad, and cranberry sauce. Tom and the Pats putting a beatdown on the Jets was the pumpkin pie of the day! ;)

I like to get things done early for the holidays so that I can sit back and enjoy them instead of rushing around like a crazy person. I don't go near a mall until after January 1st.

Is this what our society has come to? Now the stores open at 8 P.M. on Thanksgiving Night! I saw people on the news who'd camped out in tents the night BEFORE Thanksgiving like they were waiting for the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade giant balloons to come down the street. Screw eating with the family, right, unless it's a hot dog on a stick over the Sterno? And the mob scenes! They only have so many sale items available. I wouldn't be aggressive enough to grab one even if I was first in line. I get wanting deals as prices are crazy but seriously?

Looks like it's back to Bob Cratchit days and now employees can expect to work on major holidays. Can't let the CEOs be a million or two short in their paychecks, now can we?

Ha, ha, this is a split post: happy at the beginning and ranty by the end. ;)
