November Heralds “Holiday Preparations!”
Tuesday, October 31st unofficially marks the passing of what many refer to as the Fall season. Once the youngsters have said farewell to the Great Pumpkin and stored away their costumes and role-playing devices, attention almost immediately turns to the upcoming holiday season. Even though winter will not officially begin until December 21st, thoughts of Thanksgiving dinners and Christmas decorations flood the minds of old and young alike. Once again it becomes a magical time of year.
Referred to by many as the festive season, or simply the holidays, this annual recurring period in many Western and Western-influenced countries, is generally considered to run from November into early January. It incorporates into its’ timeframe Thanksgiving, Advent, Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, and New Year’s. It is a time marked by parades, parties, and various types of gatherings in which people share time, gifts, and celebrations of all kinds. The exchange of gifts is central to the Christmas and holiday season, and the season thus incorporates a “holiday shopping season.” In the United States alone, the holiday season is a particularly important time for retail shopping, with shoppers spending more than $600 billion during the 2013 holiday season alone. This average was about $767 per person! For many the race for presents begins the Friday following Thanksgiving Day. Known either as Black Friday or Green Friday, the day is reputedly denoted as being the busiest shopping day of the entire calendar year. Stores are flooded with people searching for just the right gift for that special someone.
