Could the holidays have come at a worse time this year?
I don’t know about all of you out there but this year is just awful to me. With Hanukkah starting so early this year, us long suffering Jews can add another notch to his endless belt. Why? Because there is almost zero time to buy presents if we want to cash in on the holiday sales.
Option 1 – Shop before Black Friday. Completely ridiculous. It goes against my stereotype.
Option 2 – Shop the weekend of Black Friday; something that my God-given temper unfortunately does not permit. In fact, I have been self-restrained from standing in lines by 15 public activist groups.
Option 3 – Going after work on the week days right before Hanukah. Yay! Holiday shopping after a long day of work! Can you feel the sarcasm oozing out of this page?
Option 3 is the unfortunate winner. Note to the Jewish calendar: Please start Hanukkahlater next year.
