This past Saturday I went to a suburban Chicago mall with my Grandmother so she can prepare for the winter and the very first thing I noticed was the store’s Christmas decor. After standing around through a quest for winter boots I began to hear “Let It Snow,” not the Boyz II Men version sadly, play over the PA System and it hit me: the Holiday Season is here. From there my mind began to think about shopping and I realized it’s time to start gathering gifts for my loved ones now.
