Where do all the people COME from?
There is NO time of day that has fewer people on the road or in stores, this includes the dang grocery store too! And the post office! Aaaaaaaahhhhhhh!!!!

My personal theory is that Santa manufactures more people at this time of year to fulfill the Christmas dreams of the corporations. :-)

Or maybe all those people are his elves. Why would they MAKE toys these days when they've got Hasbro and Mattel to do it for them!?

You know, you may be right. Makes even more sense than my theory!

I hate Xmas shopping. I vowed that this year I would not set foot in a mall or a store. I may have to break that and go to a single store, because what I want to get one friend is unavailable online. (Well, it's available online if I live in Japan. But since I am in the USA, I must go to the store that imports it.)

My friends and family were finally on the same page this year. We agreed that we would not exchange presents, just feed each other lavishly. I am sooooooooo grateful.
