The holiday season unofficially kicked off over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. Major changes will be noted in your daily activities with Christmas specials and movies dominating nights usually reserved for your favorite television series.
Also "Black Friday" and "Cyber Monday" had many of us reaching for our credit cards. Drives to feed and clothe those less fortunate will proliferate radio and television public service announcements
I love this time of year. Every "Black Friday" my wife and I get up and head to the Boise Town Square Mall. We usually stop at our favorite coffee shop and stock up on caffiene. We don"t go to the mall to buy anything, but rather to spectate. We love watching the crowds searching for their treasures, then standing in line to pay. We see acquaintences we haven't seen for months and have a great time. By the time we have had our fill of crowds and noise we head out to the parking lot which has filled to capacity. A little christmas music on the radio for the drive home, and the holiday season is underway.
