The Christmas shopping season always makes me think. Companies all across the US are looking to unload their garbage onto you or your loved ones and they’re willing to use any tactic in the book. Holiday sales used to be just Black Friday and then Cyber Monday, but now they’ve added more days and weeks to the sales and I just can’t keep track of it all. It just seems to be a nonstop orgy of sales all the way between Thanksgiving and Christmas. As someone without a lot of people on my Christmas shopping list, I get my Holiday shopping done early and without much fuss. I then get to sit back and watch in complete awe as my phone, radio and email explode with special once in a lifetime offers for shit that I’ve never expressed any interest in whatsoever.
This is what every Holiday sales season feels like to me.
P.S. I actually left out a few of the other holidays that have been steadily added to incrementally bloat Christmas Shopping Season over the years.
P.P.S. No imaginary creatures were harmed in the making of this post.
If it’s funny because it’s true, then this is the truest thing ever because it’s absolutely hilarious.
If that makes no sense, forgive me. I’ve been up all night wrapping Christmas presents. I lost the ability to function as anything other than a gift-wrapping machine about an hour back.
Aw, thanks! Hope you get all the wrapping done.
I got everything wrapped that I won’t need till Christmas Eve. But the stuff I need for tomorrow? I don’t even know where half of it is, and the two things I can find aren’t wrapped. Yet. Thank goodness I still have all day tomorrow to catch up. 🙂
Glad the sales monster is OK! Great post. I’m still laughing. 🙂
Thanks Pensitovity. Great name by the way.
Thank you. Happy Holidays!
I saw Green Monday sales advertised this year. WTF is Green Monday anyway?
Glad you liked the post. Green Monday was created by E-bay to describe its best sales day of December.
No worries. Valentine’s Day stuff is already out and ready for sale and consumption. Now, excuse me while I go into a corner and cry…
Ugh… These holidays keep getting earlier and earlier. The best animation I saw depicting this was a turkey that had a jack’o lantern’s face with a Santa hat that said happy everything!
This is the best thing I’ve seen in a while. I’m so sick of invented holiday shopping days. I’m with the wizard.
Thanks becomingcliche! Yeah, every Christmas season gets a little more insane than the previous one.
Black Friday well and truly infiltrated the United Kingdom this Christmas. Some ladies were punching each other over some 50% off underwear in ASDA.
And in a vague (i.e. essentially non-existent, but I thought you would like to hear about it) connection, a programme has just sprung on the TV with the ‘info’ stating “Katie meets Hannah from Wrexham, who got Double-G breast implants after a break-up, and Holly who has a tattoo of a penis on her back”.
I’m not even sure why I bother waking up any more.
Holy hell! That was awesome. I swear I was THINKING that comic last year. We skipped Christmas altogether and went birding instead. We loved it so much, it’s now a new tradition. Even my kids approve. Cheers!
