Now that we here in the US have celebrated Thanksgiving we are officially in the season of mad shopping. If you do not live in the US, I need to share with you that our retailers took Black Friday to an extreme this year. Wednesday (day before Thanksgiving) many retailers held pre-Black Friday sales followed by sales on Thanksgiving! The reasoning was this would prevent the huge crowds on just one day. I see this as being even more greedy than in earlier years, another way to grab an extra dollar, but that’s just my opinion.
If you are like me you are trying to avoid shopping and working hard to eliminate products manufactured in less than humane ways in distant countries.With 23 more days until Christmas there is still time to make a few gifts. So today I am going to share gifts from as many different mediums as I can.
