Stop the Christmas Card Glitter!

An article in the Mirror reminded me of something that bugs me around Christmas. This is the time of year when you hear from people you don't usually hear from the rest of the year, and that's awesome. Most of the time, that contact comes in the form of a Christmas card. I get the envelope, check the return address to see who it's from...and then I excitedly open it, only to find out that Aunt Agnes has chosen the most dreaded of all Christmas cards...the glitter card! I am now standing in the middle of my kitchen, glitter from head to toe, looking like a cross between Lady Gaga and the drummer from a Kiss cover band. but that's not all.

O Christmas Tree, Why Don’t You Like Me?

Last weekend, Diane and I went to choose the tree we'd decorate in the front yard this year. We picked a beauty, brought it home and I set it in place. Monday, I picked up the lights and some outside decorations and got to work. The lights worked on the first try, the decorations were perfect and I was done in 45 minutes. Perfect!  But that tree wasn't done with me.

It's the most wonderful time of the year, unless you have a lot of gifts to buy, a lot of shopping to do, and not a lot of time to get it all done. I've seen the tension on the roads of Monmouth and Ocean Counties already this season. Drivers are a little more likely to cut you off or speed past you these days because of all the stress and time pressures they face.

The name though, is starting to seem incredibly fitting as the day takes on a more negative image. It seems like every year stores are pushing things further and further when it comes to holiday shopping. Decorations are out before summer ends, and Black Friday sales are starting on...Thursday?
