Let’s see today was the last day the US postal service could guarantee that whatever you’re priority mailing will make it by Christmas. Also, there are only 3 shopping days until Christmas. What does this mean? Stay away from the post office and the mall.
Gift giving has always flummoxed me. When I was a kid you gave the people you cared about something you made. Everyone smiled and the ceramic ash tray in the shape of Michigan gets put away once you leave. As you get older you start realizing that you really need to know people well to be able to get them something they would like… I’m an introvert, getting to know people well takes decades. So as you try to figure out if your should buy your second cousin, Ingmar, a fondue set or matching dish towels… Just remember there are only 369 shopping days until the next Christmas! Oh, and go with the dish towels, nothing says I care like dish towels.
