Or Kwanza - I'm so kidding - that's a pretend holiday, isn't it - it was made up in the '70's I think? (Or maybe later?)
Anyway, we have no snow in Minnesota - I don't think anyone else in the country has much white stuff either.
At my Store, sales are brisk - however - if we had snow, sales would be better.
Yep! Snow gets people all holiday verklempft. They are so apt to buy more and buy nostalgic or romantic - and expensive - when there is snow. People get in the mood, and go over-board. They want to be out in it and buy those special gifts - it's just so Christmassy. Even if you're one of those hard-hearted, jaded, spoiled, princesses from one of the affluent suburbs, you're taken in by the snow. (Even the urban Scrooge gets a bit kinder and gentler when there is snow.)
The emotionality of snow and holiday lights...ah! How it makes those registers ring!
Today it was in the upper 40's - very warm and balmy - we were slow in the Store - steady, but a tad slow.
We so need snow - even just for people to be nice - so far, people haven't been that nice this season - including me I guess.
I rush to add this - :) And, Happy Holidays - no matter what you call them! (Why do people think we need snow for Christmas anyway? Did Hollywood do that?)
