Bursting the Gobble — 3 Comments

  1. I wish everyone would boycott the stores that are opening early so no one would show up. If it hit their bottom line, they would stop doing it. But I imagine there will be those who will be standing in line, waiting for the doors to open. Unfortunately, we have become a society promoting materialism. It’s bad enough to see the Christmas decorations out before Halloween.

  2. What also is sad is that soon as a holiday is over, the very next day, there is already candy and decorations for the next holiday. The stores always seem to be wanting us thinking of the next holiday instead of savoring memories of the one we just had. No thanks to Valentine’s candy in December.

    • I hear you! I can understand that stores want to encourage their bottom line, but we can make the conscious decision not to let the stores push the next holiday on us. Speaking for myself, I purposely don’t start listening to Christmas carols or put up the tree and decorations until the day after Thanksgiving at the earliest. I feel it’s important to be mindful and stay in the moment to truly enjoy it.
