Christmas Shopping

I don't mind Christmas Shopping.  In fact, I do most of it from the comfort of my own chair equipped with a mouse.
It's just that it is hard to get into the Spirit of things.  So, once a year we wander into the "Big City" and go to the
mall to try to gather enough Spirit to last the Season.  What worked in the past no longer works.  The mall is
practically empty of retail stores and the decorations are sparse to say the least.  Santa did greet me by name
(or I would like to think so!) and waved a Merry Howdy to me, but other than that, it was not what I usually
expect out of a Christmas excursion.
I got my yearly Orange Julius and we ate at 5 Guys Burgers and Fries which made me very satisfied. (Yum!)
Big Lots was a bust and K-Mart is getting overpriced since they were taken over by Sears.
I suppose next year we will have to find a different way to psych ourselves up since it looks like the Malls are
going out of business.
Christmas music, a fire in the wood stove and cookies in the oven.  That is the solution.
Merry Yuletide Season to all!

Technically K-mart bought Sears. Hard to imagine I know.

I'm thinking that you went to the wrong mall. I don't doubt that malls in general may be struggling but the ones in my area are full of shops, customers, and decorations.
