Here it all comes

So loud and very clear

That lovely holiday music

You know now itís coming near


Thoughts spinning fast

Every darn holiday season

I want it to quickly pass

For good, stressful reasons


Being such a miserable grinch

Not going out to that busy mall

Holidays can be a fricken bitch

Rather bang my head against a wall  


Shoppers rush top speed  

Faster they all run and go

For stuff they think they need

Maybe even just for a little show


Pushing, shoving holiday style


The holiday rush is going strong

Arguing occurring in the last toy aisle

Better get your shiny amour on


Crowds swarming, shoppers abound

All the stores such a big giant mess

Clothes and toys thrown all around

Shopping online would be the best

I have to agree as I don't participate in this annual "mall" ritual. I' getting to have an "online" life in everything (but I suppose that's not so good) Enjoyed reading a few of yours AND thanks for leaving a review of one of my "songs" here at AD last week; sorry I don't often go online till Sundays at AD.
Best to you, Michael Guy

lol that's the same way I feel I hate shopping malls
At this time of the year it's really chaos
and then after Xmas it's the same thing
people returning the gifts for cash!!
Thank God I'm not working this year at the mall lol
So now I just enjoyed the Xmas music and lights
To me that is the true meaning of Christmas!
Excellent imagery and message within!!
Love Peace and hugssss....Morning Star

The Holidays would truly be a wondrous thing, except for all those Mad Shoppers, and I avoid them as often as I can.

For all the reasons you have given is exactly why I shop through catalogs and on line. Can't remember the last time I went to a mall.
Strickly Target, Home Depot, Hobby Lobby and Petsmart....

Be safe,

The commercialism, the gotta have must have mentality has taken out the joys of many's Christmases...but then again, there is shining hope in angels providing an unexpected Christmas gift to someone needy...especially love it when its anonymous. Happened to Karen and I, last week. Even though we don't have much, we're grateful for what we do have...I hope this year you find the peace you seek.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla. :(

Oh Oh Staci I love this time of the year and I never appear to be stressed out because I am always well prepared ahead of time, if others made their list as I do, as soon as the new year hits they would be so much farther ahead. I make a list of family who I buy for and than friends and the third list is of those who I send cards to. I start as the new year begins. This is Nov. 25th. my parcels are all sent out and the gifts for here are wrapped and tagged, my cards are addressed,and stamped ready for Mr.Mailman for Dec.1st. So "MOST" people are stressed out because they choose to be at this very special time of year when we celebrate the most precious birth of all. Hope you do get the Spirit of the coming season.

Newfie Hugs, Rose
