Who’d a Thunk it?
Have you been in any retail store lately? Your neighborhood grocery store, a big box store, anything? Who’d a thunk you’d see Christmas in October? One of our local news stations asked people if they thought it’s just TOO DARN EARLY to see Christmas items in the store, and more than 78% of the people said Yes! And I’ll admit, we totally agree! But there it is, big as day, staring you in the face, asking that you BUY BUY BUY now now now before they run out (as if they’re going to run out) of inventory!
Kinda makes me wonder. I wonder if we’re really thinking about Christmas!
Nah, can’t possibly be!
(Of course those of us who craft start making our Christmas gifts for next year January, but we’re the exception to the rule!)
Most of us are going to wait until November, or even December, before we start making our lists and checking them twice!
If we wait, then we get to enjoy Halloween and Thanksgiving! Those are 2 great holidays that seem to disappear more and more each year. Sure, you see lots of candy and the frozen turkeys are starting to appear, but are you really enjoying Halloween and are you honestly thankful on the one-day-of-the-year-set-aside-to-say-THANKS?
So, then, you’re wondering why I’m writing to ask if you’d even begin to think about Christmas! I dare say, YES!
The inventory at Roadrunner Florist and Basket Express is arriving fresh daily. We have limited supplies of delicious cookies, cakes, pies and pates. We are ordering our fresh fruit by the bushel, both organic and non. We have ordered our Christmas Greens (I can hardly wait for them to come into the shop because they smell so great!) as well as our holiday flowers! We have containers in various shapes and shades of red, green, silver, gold and white. We are setting out our candles for your centerpieces. We’re lining up our delivery drivers.
It’s quite a season for us, and a busy one, so we’re excited! But who’d a thunk you’d get excited too?
Well, I THUNK SO!! I think you can’t help get excited when you hear the music (Santa Claus is Coming to Town), when you start to think that YOU are Santa Claus and that we’re here to help you!
Our beautiful websites are ready to accept your holiday orders, for Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas. www.roadrunnerflorist.com and www.giftbasketsbytina.com are loaded with ideas, and if you don’t see your favorite, then simply call us and we’ll design unique gifts for you!
I dare say it’s not too early … not too early to Thunk About It! Happy happy happy holidays!
