'Tis the Season

Nothing says Happy Holidays quite like gunfire in a toy store.

And what would Christmas be without morons wrestling each other to the ground for an XBOX?

And what about a man being trampled to death at Wal-Mart?

Really...isn't that what Christmas is all about?

Oh wait...it isn't?

You mean it's about celebrating the birthday of Jesus? And about showing peace, love, and goodwill to others?

Huh.

Pin It!

You are so right!! I am boycotting Black Friday - people are CRAZY!

Rhea said...

I like what you've done to your blog for the holidays. Very nice decor!!

It makes me so sad and frustrated to hear people going nuts over xmas shopping. UGH It's so sad to hear the true messages of the season get totally lost and trampled like that.

Delberta said...

I too will be boycotting Black Friday and urge all Stores to stop the feeding frenzy and offer the sale prices all day.

Denise said...

I have always been a fan of shopping on Black Friday but after hearing all the horror stories from this past friday I think I am done....low prices just arent worth the possiblity of injury or worse.

Caroline said...

I am posting about the man being trampled at Wal-Mart. Its absolutely unbelievable. What is the world coming to?

That is why I stay home and sleep in, people are just way too out of control that early in the morning.

Sorry about the peanut butter and swiss cheese thing, but it is an aquired taste.♥

I have to say...I did NOT have any rude people near me on black friday, Thank God!

Doesn't it just make you sick? We watched a show about crazy shopper the night before Black Friday, it was unbelievable.
I don't do BF shopping....never have, never will.

This is why I don't go. Oh, and the fact that I hate people. Have I said that lately?
I went Targeting yesterday and got a few good deals, and spent Friday online. Can't beat free shipping!

Blarney said...

I found all my items on the internet for the same in-store sale price Friday. I stayed in my PJ's and clicked my way to peaceful shopping.

Lindsay said...

I don't do Black Friday. I don't like the crowds that come with shopping anyway, and especially not times 10.

Mamarazzi said...

i had the exact same thoughts as i heard about those horrific stories. VERY sad.

Julie said...

What have we come to? We're just a bunch of animals!

Columbia Lily said...

WORD. It's a homemade Christmas for me this year.

Z's Mom said...

Amen!!!

My son and dil went to our local WalMart, here in small town Iowa and they said it was crazy. It's not something I care to do. I know why so many grandparents resort to gift cards......

Tiffany said...

We were in Palm Spring on a little vaca a few days before a shooting at the Toys R Us. Yep. Black Friday.

What is wrong with people?

And, why does your girl look like she is losing her chub? This is unacceptable.

That is so true. Makes me sick to think people are like that. The article about that man that was trampled to death was horrible. The shoppers were angry that they were closing the store because someone was killed. Are you kidding me?
