About Holiday Shopping

Sunday.  Post Thankgiving Sunday.  No Black-Friday for me; I'm not interested in shopping when everyone else goes.  Christmas is coming, yes, and shopping is a requirement because the only people who truly appreciate the need to make small pacts to forgo the expenses are the ones with no kids. 

But, as soon as the pre-holiday dread passes (usually mid-December), the holiday focus will shift to spending time with friends.  When the shopping fairy comes, I will go with her and shop during the dinner hour on weekdays.  That's the time to go - when everyone else is hungry you can get the jump on the lines.  Another piece of advice: avoid the mall.

Ho ho oh!
