Wreck: holiday madness
The semester is almost over, and you know what is even closer? The holidays.
Thanksgiving break is only a few days away and the turkey will be carved and ready in eight days. But the real question is, where has all the time gone? It seemed like just yesterday that it was summer; now it is the holiday season. Winter break is 23 days away and more holidays are creeping up on us. It will be as crazy as it always has been, or maybe worse. Retailers were ready for the holidays before Halloween.
To start off the countdown, Thanksgiving comes in a week and a day. Hanukkah starts in 28 days, Christmas follows in 37 days and there are only 43 days until we ring in the new year.
If you aren’t already going crazy from all of the commercials on TV, just wait, there will be more. We’ve already been seeing the commercials for about a month, most stores started holiday advertisements on Halloween, showing the latest gadgets, toys and computers hour after hour. The shoppers looking for the best deals will be waking up at the crack of dawn next Friday for what they think are the best deals.
What might be the worst part about all of this is the stores will be open on Thanksgiving day. A day that our whole country celebrates with their families and shares good food. K-Mart and Dunkin Donuts will be opening at 6 a.m. and Walgreens will follow at 8 a.m.
With the holiday craziness coming up, we can either join in, or sit back, relax and enjoy our full bellies on Thanksgiving day.
