Twas the day after Thanksgiving,
and all through the mall,
lots of crazies were stirring,
the big and the small.
The decorations were hung
throughout the mall with some care,
but wasn’t these snowflakes
up before Halloween?
Well aside from the bad poetry, today is the official start of the Christmas shopping season. It was the day that, traditionally, retailers accounting books went from “red” to “black.” And while that’s not really true anymore its still a big day for retailers. And bargain hunters.
So good luck and great “sale-ing.”
