|Wow, these oranges are great, and they don't even say|
Sunkist on them... Christmas comes earlier each year... Enjoy!
The one thing that always flabbergasts me is all the Christmas decorations and gifts being displayed for purchase in September. Right after Labor day, my favorite store--Costco and many others-- go into Christmas mode. Call it commercialism, call it capitalism. I like to call it "Premature Decorations," a condition consisting of visions of green paper money along with plastic debit and credit cards "dancing in our head...".
Christmas is definitely coming earlier and earlier each year. This really is not a bad thing, since it would be wonderful if people were as generous for longer intervals than just one day a year.
Black Friday is routinely the busiest retail shopping day of the year. Black Friday originated in Philadelphia back around 1975, which originally was used to describe the traffic mayhem that occurred the day after Thanksgiving. Black Friday actually indicates the point at which retailers begin to turn a profit, hence the term “in the black...”
Black is also the color of authority and power. It is popular in fashion because it makes people look thinner. Priests wear black to signify submission to God. Black can also indicate evil, so look out all you Black Friday shoppers.
I would like to propose the following colors to represent the remaining days of the week--every week for a full year commencing with Black Friday.
White Saturday. Brides wear white. White goes with everything and don’t forget that doctors, and other medical professionals, along with chefs, wear white. White Saturday would be the day you go to your psychiatrist wondering why you ate so much on Thursday and spent your life savings on Black Friday. A day so designated to seeing medical professionals wearing white.
Red Sunday. Red is the color of love. Red is also the most emotional color, it stimulates a faster heartbeat. Red clothing makes one look heavier, red stands out, and is noticed. That’s why many fire engines are painted red. Red attracts attention.
Blue Monday. Blue is the color of the sky and ocean. Blue is tranquil, causing the body to produce calming chemicals. They say to wear blue to a job interview, since blue symbolizes loyalty. Blue Monday is said to defer one from having the blues which is why everyone shops the Internet on this day--hence Cyber Monday.
Green Tuesday. Green symbolizes nature, and is the most popular decorating color. Green is also the color of money, and without money premature decorations would be at a loss. The word is to spend your green.
Finally, we have Yellow Wednesday. People loose their tempers more often in yellow rooms, and babies cry more when left in yellow rooms. Yellow is also an attention-getter. Yellow Wednesday would be the day that stores try to get our attention once again with big yellow signs that read, ‘Suckers!’
We may all go bankrupt if Christmas keeps this pace .We would not only say, "Merry Christmas and Happy New Year," but "Merry Christmas and Happy Presidents day," Merry Christmas and Happy Independence day," Merry Christmas and Happy Halloween." You get the drift.
I'm dreaming of a white Christmas may soon become "I'm dreaming of Christmas everyday," even on my favorite Jewish holidays. With that said, "Merry Christmas and Happy Passover to one and all.
