Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


Merry Christmas on Nov. 10?

I am one of those people who bee-bops around during the holidays. I like to decorate the day after Thanksgiving. I have most of my Christmas shopping done already. I'm that kind of person. But, even this goes beyond my holiday spirit. Sunny 97.1 is already playing Christmas music -AND NOTHING BUT CHRISTMAS MUSIC!!!!! WTF?

But, while we're on the Christmas topic, I'm a little peeved at Target. What a bunch of Scrooges. Target won't allow the Salvation Army bell ringers to solicit in front of their stores this holiday season. That is just downright sad to me and apparently it is going to have a huge impact on the bottom line for the Salvation Army, which pulls in big bucks from Target shoppers. I know it will probably impact what we give to the bell ringers because I avoid the mall at all costs during the holidays and tend to shop the stand-alone stores like Target and Hasting's. My kids always get a charge out of dropping their change in the kettle. Target said they're just following a policy that has been in place. The chain does give a lot of money to charities, I just don't like this.

I can't believe I'm already talking about Christmas. Bah, humbug.
