Thanksgiving has passed and the demented Black Friday shoppers have done their damage. This was my second time playing the role of moral support while accompanying a friend on their quest for good deals. I seldom offer my services for this dreaded mission as the sergeant of arms (I have no qualms fighting Grandma for an Xbox 360), but I was feeling generous this year. Luckily, I didn’t have to utilize my aggression defense training while Josh purchased his Xbox Star Wars bundle pack and I bought my newest addition to my boot collection (Hi, I’m Shannon and I have a shoe problem).
I was quite surprised by the lack of craziness during this Black Friday’s festivities. I witnessed no fights and heard no threats. It was actually quite disappointing; I had mentally prepared myself for a battle of strength if it came down to me going toe to toe over Dance Central 3. I suppose Walmart is the place to go for knockout brawls, however I will never be convinced to wait for 8 hours in the freezing cold to submerge myself in a sea of crazed mothers playing tug of war over Wii U.
While Thanksgiving was a time to give thanks for family, friends, and hopes of good prices on that new 60″ TV you were planning on buying; it is also a reminder of a more important time of year… CHRISTMAS. B97.5 has already started playing Christmas music non-stop (thanks, Delilah) and houses are being decorated with twinkling lights and red ribbon. The best part of it all: people are more accepting of this holiday cheer now that Thanksgiving is over.
I hope all of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving break with your families/friends and are stuffed with turkey leftovers. I have currently logged 5 Thanksgiving/leftover meals this week (and counting!)
Monday is approaching bringing back the lull of school work and job duties. Here’s a Christmas mix to keep you getting through the week, enjoy!
