Here’s Why You Should Start Getting Ready for Christmas NOW
Here’s Why You Should Start Getting Ready for Christmas NOW by Daisy Luther for The Organic Prepper
TDC Note – If you start on Christmas today you can help fulfill the satanic globalist wishes of making Christmas 100% commercial with nothing to do about the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world. It would have the added bonus of fulfilling their desire to completely eliminate the family-focused time of Thanksgiving – you know, praise and thanksgiving to God. #END
It’s probably no surprise to learn that what has been one of the strangest years in recent history could culminate in a very strange Christmas. Our nation is reeling from an economy that was crashed by COVID lockdowns, the potential second wave of a pandemic which will result in more economic damage, a broken supply chain, civil unrest, and a presidential election that will almost certainly be hotly contested, regardless of who “wins.”
As Selco likes to remind us, there’s not a whole lot we can do about “big circle” problems like the ones listed above. We need to focus on the “small circle” – things we can do something about, like our response to the crises listed above.
So let’s talk about the upcoming holiday season and the ways that this year could be very different.
Gifts may be difficult to acquire.
You need only to look at the bare spots in your local Target store to see that we could be looking at a shortage of desired gifts. Due to supply chain issues, stores are not getting anywhere near the same amount of merchandise they used to get. That means that once the Christmas rush begins, the things that ARE available could sell out quickly. And it also means that you may have a lot more trouble than usual ticking items off your family members’ Christmas lists.
Retailers are quickly trying to adapt to social distancing rules while still making a buck, which means even more sales than usual will take place online.
“What we’re going to see is that because of how frictionless and easy digital commerce is to use and how safe it is, it becomes the new way of paying and the new way of shopping — especially as the pandemic continues and this behavior becomes habitual,” she said.
The bottom line: As the holiday shopping season rapidly approaches, expect things to be different this year.
“Now, most every brick-and-mortar retailer of note will close for Thanksgiving, possibly tipping the hat to a values reset around family,” PYMNTS reported. “In fact the values reset around several issues may be one of the defining characteristics of Holiday 2020.”
“It’s not hard to imagine Black Friday or even Cyber Monday using charity donations as consumer motivation to shop,” the report stated. “Especially since Black Friday pricing has been in effect pretty much since the beginning of April. Discounts have been an everyday occurrence instead of an event.” (source)
But problems with the US Postal Service could make ordering gifts to be delivered by mail a tricky endeavor. Delays began back in the summer and have continued well into October. (This article provides additional information about the slow-down of deliveries.) This could cause problems from two different angles:
- First, will you receive your order on time?
- Secondly, will the packages you mail out get to the recipients on time?
