With the holiday season finally here my mind is boggled as to what it has become. Stores are going to be open on a night when there should be reflection on what this season actually means. How it started and what its intent was. Instead it seems to be all about the shopping season. When a lot of people go crazy trying to catch deals that won’t be as good as the after Christmas sale. And while I do understand that the chaos is fun for some folks, it doesn’t seem right that store are open as early as they open now. That’s certainly a conversation for another day. But I’ll be looking ahead to when the shopping season is over. When the city calms and the chaos stops. At least for the next 10 months. Stay safe out there if you go out. And don’t push each other. No material item is worth getting injured for.
