Holiday Shopping!

Valley Times Collection, 1963

Oy! I know that most of you order everything online for your holiday gift-giving. I do too, but there are certain items that I like to see and touch BEFORE I buy them. This necessitates going into a store during the holiday season. Crowds, no parking and germy children. I try to hit the stores the minute they open in the morning to avoid the aforementioned. My big problem is that I have this pesky job and can only shop on the weekends when everyone else in the world is shopping. Double oy!

When all is said and done, I LOVE the holiday season! Seeing friends, giving everyone presents, eating jolly food are all fun. It's just the "said and done" part before the fun that makes me crazy!
When I was a kid, the shopping center at Century City was shiny and new. I could walk over after school and browse the aisles at The Broadway for the best holiday deals. Time was plentiful. Bring back those days please, along with The Broadway!!
