In this country where I live in, Christmas time officially starts at the onset of -BER months, which is September. Noticeably, traffic becomes heavier and the malls become more crowded. And during these months, my belief that my country is not poor becomes stronger because everyone seems to be very busy looking for that perfect christmas gifts 2011 for their loved ones. If we go to the mall at this time of the year, parking slots are scarce, even if we go at lunch time, just two hours after the mall opening.
I am just glad that technology made its way. Secure online shopping can be done to avoid traffic, long lines in the cashier, rubbing elbows with other shoppers, and even missing kids in a crowded place. The choices are huge and delivery of gifts can be customized, what more could I ask for?
I should really finish my list, work more for the moolah then start shopping.
