Before the Bird
November 25, 2014
There's a lot of competition for her holiday spending dollars. So, where do you fit in with all the sales circulars? Unless your station has or is going all Christmas you might feel left out. Don't, she still wants to hear her favorite songs and connect with you. Statistics show that sticking with a close friend through the holidays increases good times and helps to ward off depression. Adding the holiday happenings onto an already packed calendar can stress a gal out. But it doesn't have to. Come along side of her by providing a festive atmosphere, coupons if possible, gift tips and the best location to get a cute LBD (little black dress).
Cookie exchanges, Secret Santa's, Elf on a Shelf, Holiday pictures, trips to the mall are all on her list. Kids Christmas pageants are in rehearsals, church choirs are working through Handel's Messiah, and many are working a second job to provide supplemental income to pay for the holiday.
If she cooks she'd love to have the time to "Alton Brown" out, but often what looks easy on television or in a magazine isn't always that way when it gets time to do it yourself. A lot of her good ideas will get left behind because of time.
She's probably working overtime today at work so she can enjoy that Thanksgiving holiday without the thought of returning to a desk piled high with 'stuff.' Or, she's packing up a family to travel, or preparing for guests. Sheets are getting laundered, suitcases and kids are getting packed up and frozen turkeys are thawing. Hopefully the turkey is thawing. Maybe a reminder from you is just what's needed to get this holiday off to the right start.
