Dept. of Existential Seasonal Angst

Just Call Me a Yule-ish Capitalist

I have done all my Christmas and holiday shopping. Two days of research, an hour of checking with my Best Beloved for agreement on choices, one text, one frenzied 20-minute stretch online. 

Oh, and weeks of guilt over abandoning brick and mortar stores and the living they grant their employees. 

Go, me. 

How do the rest of you handle it?

Go, you, indeed! That's quite an accomplishment!

I find myself slightly croggled at the speed of it all, especially when I realize that the gifts I've chosen are all good ones for the people for whom they've been bought. Only one gift card!

If it makes you feel any better, by shopping on Amazon and the like, you are supporting warehouse workers and people who keep the site running. Maybe in smaller, less direct ways, but you are supporting them.

And, again, don't know if it helps, but my mom, who does most of her shopping online these days, still does some holiday shopping in physical stores. That's still something.
