Weekly Features - Nov 23

Journal Entry: Fri Nov 23, 2007, 2:27 PM

For those of you who celebrated Thanksgiving, I hope that it was a great one and you had your fill of wonderful food.  

Now that it's over, I guess the Christmas season has officially started.  Although, I saw Christmas items and displays in stores the week after Halloween.  I guess I've just never understood why people can't wait until at least after Thanksgiving before starting Christmas.  

And to those of you who are braving the chaos of black Friday shopping, I hope you survive in one piece.

Oy! So I'm working late-night custodial at the Wilk now, and we started setting up Christmas trees in late October, hoping to get a jumpstart (not to mention it's just what we were told to do). We got done with them sooner than we expected--shortly before Thanksgiving.

Apparently, somebody wrote a letter to the newspaper editor about how stupid it is that we start preparing for Christmas before Thanksgiving even happens and suggested that people speak out about it. So one night, we went to work to find handmade turkeys (you know, the kind where you trace your hand and color it brown and then make little oval feathers to paste on the fingers) and put them on the trees. The feathers said things like, "Celebrate Thanksgiving, you fools!"

Reeeeeaaaaal mature.

I think it's silly, too, but still. Meh.

And I never want to get involved in the craziness of Black Friday shopping. I did it once, and I do not ever want to do it again. :XD:
Haha. So a bunch of students with nothing better to do first complain, and then make a mess which you have to clean up. How nice of them all. Stupid people :D

(And does it really take a month to set up for Christmas in the Wilk? I don't remember it being that decorated...)
*sigh* Indeed. But we hung the paper turkeys on the cabinet at our main desk. I laugh at them sometimes because they're so corny. :XD:

It's not really that decorated, no--we only set up Christmas trees all over the place, really--but we only spare three people a night to work on them, and on really busy nights (i.e. setting up for career fairs or the horror that is Dance Sport), nobody. So it's just kind of a slow, gradual process, which is why it was started early. :shrug:
Thank you so very very much for the feature! I really value it a lot :hug:
You're welcome
