This morning while at the gym trying to work off a little of the 50lbs of food I have eaten over the last couple of days I over heard a gentleman telling Bill about incidences in Toys R Us and Walmart involving stampedes and death, I didn't believe it, I had to look it up- it's true! How absurd! It makes me physically ill to think that getting a better price on some item is worth stepping on another human being, and killing them! I'm just so stupefied by this.
People feel sorry for us because we're not doing Christmas. I must re-phrase that, we're not doing a Christmas with gifts. Sure the kids will get things from Grandparents and such, but not from Bill or I (or Santa). We still do Christmas with decorations, music, caroling with our bread, and most importantly, family. We celebrate the birth of our Savior, and love the more charitable spirit that seems to permeate most people (unless it's black Friday and they're stampeding into Walmart...). So did anybody go out on Black Friday? Any good stories?
