What now?

 


So much for Halloween candy.

Christmas always comes to an abrupt end, it seems. For 2 1/2 solid months, the stores have been draped with garlands, dripping bright ornaments, while Halloween candy is in shopping cart marked "50% off". Carols of all types have been playing in a loop, but for some reason they have been classier this year.

Celebrating and loving with our family is a wonderful year long fest. So, pick up all that wrapping paper, down the eggnog, and finish up all those little chores.

Here is before:

Walmart sells everything.


Here is after:

after the Christmas rush

But, no one sees what is really left behind:


Dump site for carts from all stores
There were mountains of shopping carts tossed in the field.
After a month or so, these were all gone. 


Christmas is over, yes, but we will continue rejoicing for the entire year. No matter how strange and scary our lives are now, we will continue to rejoice. 

After all, Christmas is only 11 months and a few days away.

    1. Wow. Target had a better pic. WalMart always has cars in the parking lot.

    1. I am trying to do the post-Christmas packing up, but maybe we'll leave wrapping papers and ribbons out, just in case.

    1. Considering how 2020 sent the months tumbling, the next Christmas should be a week, or maybe two weeks away.

  8. Do you know I actually saw Easter Eggs for sale in our local shop!!!

    Meanwhile our Prime Minister has just announced we are in lockdown again here in the UK.

    Things can only get better - here's to a happy and healthy 2021.
    Let's keep smiling and keep positive.

    My good wishes.

    All the best Jan
