    I don't know about you, but as much as I like the holiday season, I've been seeing decorations and hearing Christmas music since Sept. I've had it. I would like to give a shout out to Outbound Dan for "Last Minute Christmas Gifts From The Convenience Store."

      You're lucky!! I haven't heard even a single Christmas Carol this year as I'm away from Home and here in India there are no festivities on the roads during Christmas at all....
      Only when I go for the Christmas Mass I may get to hear some - I've just downloaded some carols though big_smile

    That was a very well written piece, although being non-American a lot of it went right over my head! Woooosh!
    I enjoyed it, though. Thanks for sharing smile

      No problem. I don't know why it posted twice, if you can delete one from your side, go ahead. In the US we have convenience stores. They have only basics, bread and mild the healthiest. Then they have junk food, wood, lighters, in some states they even sell alcohol and guns, but not in NJ, where I live. They carry a few canned goods. Mostly people of other countries run them, so they are open on holidays that many Americans would never work. I'm surprised they have reusable bags in some states, I've been re-using mine for about 5 yrs. now, such the environmentalist! Take care.

        Oh we convenience stores in the UK that are just the same (none here but hey, can't have everything!) but he did make frequent references to US TV people who I have never heard of.

        Still I got the gist of it smile

        Your have two previous posts up, and only you can delete one of them. Look at the bottom right of your posts and there is a delete button.
