Yes, I would like you to clear something up for me. Iíve been sick and havenít been able to get out and do much Christmas shopping. On Nov. 30 I finally went to the store and there wasnít much left. I said, ďAre you going to be getting some new stuff in for Christmas.Ē They said, ďHoney, Christmas is over with.Ē And the next day, on Dec. 1, the same thing happened to me. They said they werenít going to be getting nothing else in because Christmas is over with on Dec. 1. Well, then why do celebrate Christís birthday on Dec. 25 if Christmas is over with on Dec. 1. We are not celebrating Christís birthday. All you are wanting to do is spend, spend, spend. If you donít start buying for Christmas in July you just donít get nothing. Is that what youíre saying? Thank you.
