White Rabbit! So the holiday decorations went up in the mall yesterday even before the trick-or-treaters made their way around for treats yesterday. I watched in horror as one by one the kiosks across from our store were adorned with traditional garland and ribbons. Halloween’s not even half over, I recall thinking. And here you are decorating for Christmas! 😡 The worst came when my shift was about three-quarters over and our owner (I respect you dearly, Thayne, but please try to understand) started hanging cardboard cutouts of nutcrackers around our store! No, no, no! Wait at least until after the trick-or-treaters pass by this evening! 😥
Don’t get me wrong; I love Christmas and all that it brings, but retail Christmas/holiday season is the worst! Everyone seems to scurry about and worry about getting “the best” or looking for material goods to give to everyone else about this time of year and forgetting the real reason for the holiday season.
I’m not looking forward to retail Christmas/holiday season. Never have and never will.
Try to enjoy yourselves and not get too carried away in this stressful time of year; I will write again as soon as I can, but I do not know when that will be.
Love and prayers! 🙂 ❤
