The shopping frenzy begins at Thanksgiving and it doesn’t let up until merchandise return season the week after Christmas. Every year there are crowds, lines, lists and more activities than sane people should ever sign up for. Every year many of us resolve to make the holidays smaller and simpler, just to let them get away from us yet again.
Sure it’s tempting to stay home in your jammies, flip up your laptop and do all your shopping online, but where’s the fun in that? Wrapping gifts is even better than receiving them, and there’s nothing social or personal about that cardboard box the UPS guy brings with a “fond” message printed on the receipt.
This year it’s King Street to the rescue.
