Let the Season of Spending Begin

Welcome to December. Today is “Cyber Monday,” the big e-retail sales day which follows “Black Friday.” May I suggest names for other days on the holiday retail calendar?

Stampede Saturday
Sucky Sales Sunday
Tramplin’ Tuesday
Weltschmertz* Wednesday
Throw-in-the-Towel Thursday

(*Weltschmertz: Sorrow or sadness over the present or future evils or woes of the world in general).

Actually, news reports are that Black Friday didn’t turn out so badly for retailers, proving that Americans haven’t completely lost their consumer mojo. USA! USA! USA!

Now go buy some tickets to the performing arts as gifts for all your friends.
