Even worser than last year, it appears that people (except those crazies with their mis-matched, gaudy awful light setups who use Christmas more as another occasion to get drunk) just aren’t up for Christmas. It seems that the occasion has been continually subdued from one year to the next. Economy bad? Job market scarce? Too high priced healthcare? Worried about showing Christian? Scared to be in crowds?
I went to watch the grandbabies in the Nutcracker on Saturday and it was the best one yet. Went to Wal-Mart and Lowes and both were jammin. The Mall is slammed. Costco is just a joke. To me, it appears that people aren’t afraid of being out……well some anyway. I guess that just maybe people are either deepressed or might not want to “stick out” in these current times. Can’t really say what it is but it sure isn’t the way it use to be. Maybe it will be better next year cause this isn’t Christmas as I am used to.
