Celebrated every year on November 26.
This is a very commercial holiday to remind you
that you only have one month until Christmas.
If you haven’t bought any presents yet, you’d better go shopping right now!
If you wait too long, the shops will be crowded.
And if you didn’t save up enough money for the presents,
then prepare to eat muesli and instant noodles from now on
so you can buy expensive stuff
that will probably end up in a closet unused.
But at least you won’t look like the cheapskate that you probably are.
“Giving opens the way for receiving.”
— Florence Scovel Shinn
