Holiday traditions, old and new

Yesterdays and Todays ... focuses on yuletide past

November 25, 2012

Exhaustion during Thanksgiving weekend might come from the preparation, cleanup and bloating from an elaborate meal full of rich food, but for the last several years it is also likely due to the frenzy of Black Friday, continued into Saturday, and anticipation of Cyber Monday. Where can the best deals be found, what early hours do the stores open, and what is the best logistical plan to get to all the stores? This of course has nothing to do with the holiday of Thanksgiving and recognizing our blessings like the Pilgrims in 1621. For most people, this hectic shopping which has now become a tradition is the official beginning of the Christmas season. Finding the right gift is definitely fun right up there with Santa, but perhaps it needs to be revisited when it comes to racing people to a parking space, shoving in lines and going into debt.
