Predawn alarms were set,
Why act so crazy?
While I am not quite sure if I will be redoing a full Christmas carol this year, I figured at least a verse would suffice for now. One week and one day post Black Friday means the holiday shopping season is in full force. I know people who are the full range of shoppers: pre-dawn Black Friday, list specific, here/there/whenever, have-no-idea, last-minute shoppers, LAST minute shoppers. I’m a bit of each minus the LAST minute. The thought of looking for something on Christmas Eve isn’t my idea of fun.
This past Black Friday I did go shopping with my MiL. We went to ONE store long after the deals started and so there were no crowds and minimal wait time. I was able to find some presents as well as presents for myself ( new pjs to work on my debate.) That was the only day of the Black/Local/Cyber trifecta that I took part in this year. Maybe next year there will be a full three but that is for a December 2012 post.
The mental list of ideas is slowly being completed and if all goes as planned, everything will be here, wrapped, and ready in time. I enjoy looking for presents that will work well for the particular person rather than more general ideas when I can. It might take a bit extra work but seeing the happy faces as a result is totally worth it.
What kind of Christmas shopper are you? Did you take part of Black Friday, Local Saturday, or Cyber Monday?
