Thanksgiving Day marks the start of the holidays.
Day after starts putting up the Christmas tree.
If I’m awake after being up in line since midnight for that most coveted TV that has been slashed more than fifty percent off.

Going back and forth to the list of gifts made during the year to avoid all the crowds, all the hoopla about the holidays,
the mad dash for all to accomplish.
Annoying glances at the customer service counter that seem to move quarter of an inch every hour.

Fights breaking out at the parking lot about who was here first and who gets the space.

When we forget what the season is about.

Learning to wait.
Not instant gratification which seem to be the norm nowadays.


Ain’t Christmas season the extreme tale?
