Under the Hat: Days to Consider

Posted: Updated:

I was glad to see the traditional Black Friday frolic is now being followed by a Small Business Saturday.

It's good to remind ourselves that small business is one of the prime engines of our country and that those dollars spent locally do indeed tend to stay local.

Cyber Monday focuses on Internet deals but in reality people these days are buying online throughout the season.

Now there are other efforts underway to claim shopping days for particular causes.

One would create a "Giving Tuesday" for instance to remind us of the true spirit of the season.

Another would create a Tablet Thursday to honor those who shop in person but who still bring the electronics with them to double check deals and research options.

It all has me wanting to go out there in a mad dash, similar to those that take place for a flat screen, to grab a few days of my own.

I was thinking maybe: Where's the Parking Monday? Or perhaps we could start a The-Line-Starts-Where? Saturday.

How does Exhaustion Tuesday sound?

What about Overdrawn Wednesday or My-Trunk's-Not-Big-Enough Friday?

Then there's the always popular Bah-Hum-Bug Thursday or the Thank-Goodness-It's-Over Sunday.

I'm not opposed to giving gifts for the holidays but I don't think we give enough recognition to the toll all that shopping takes on us.

Now those would be days to consider.
