The time of year for my first Christmas movie, which in my case is my last Halloween movie: The Nightmare Before Christmas. I love this movie. The pumpkin king discovers the joy of Christmas and wants to make the Christmas holiday his own, but even doing his best, he can’t get Christmas right.
Malls and stores are full of Christmas displays, and seasonal lights line city streets, and even some friends of mine have already begun putting out their ornaments. Holiday decorating is a time-consuming processes, and we are eager to get our holiday decorations up so we can enjoy them for as long as possible. Retailers need are ready for Black Friday, the day retailers finally begin to turn a profit for the year, due almost entirely to our holiday season spending. Retailers are strongly motivated to make sure we have available all the choices we could want for our end of year shopping. Craft shops are also offering sale after sale for sewers and crafters busy making gifts for family and friends.
In fact, I have received several pamphlets from stores of all kinds with attractive pictures letting me know what is available to decorate with, dress in, to eat, or gift to others. From do it myself to let them do everything, from rustic to sparkling, in every taste and every wallet in mind. The retailers have us covered. Nothing is left to chance. Lay-a-way, easy payment plans, delayed payment, no interest plans are all available to make sure we can get everything we want for everyone on our list. But beware! The bill will come due!
Time to get busy people, but first, I have a movie to enjoy.
