I have to admit that the encroachment of the holiday shopping season on the Thanksgiving holiday was making me mad. I understand that retailers need big sales for their yearly results, but have some respect, will ya?
But the day after Thanksgiving, I ventured into downtown Chicago, not to buy anything, but to see if I couldn’t find some holiday spirit. And lucky for me, a ten year-old and the windows on State Street (I’ll always refer to it as Marshall Field’s) worked their magic, and the turning of the calendar to December made a difference, too.
With all that in mind, happy holidays to all!
