It's never too oily too get in the holiday swing
Well, you don’t need me to tell you that the holiday rush is on.
Sure, it used to get rolling after we’d finished washing the turkey roasting pan, snatched a post-feast snooze and awakened all refreshed for that venerable consumer tradition known as Black Friday.
No more. As you probably know, it’s not necessary to squander precious shopportunities by lollygagging around the dinner table with loved ones. How silly is that, when we can be jammed into lines with perfect strangers by 9 p.m. Thanksgiving evening, eager for those doorbusters?
(Forgive me for appearing to judge; I’m just goofy and sentimental about holiday traditions. And besides, we columnists are known to be uppity and judgmental sorts. It’s in the job description).
And anyway, you’ve probably noticed that most major retailers display no discernible compunction when it comes to setting out the displays of tinsel and inflatable Santas around Labor Day or thereabouts.
