Pretty lights on the tree, I’m watching them shine

24 Nov

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!

    I was really surprised by how tame Black Friday was too! I work at Target, and all of our customers were so chipper! It made working for nine hours almost pleasant.
