Walking Christmas Trees!

I think people around this time of the season take the phrase, “Deck The Halls”, a little too seriously!
This past Saturday my sisters & I decided to head out to mall to do some shopping. I swear, it was the worst idea that we’ve ever had. The crowds, the screaming kids, the smells, it was way too much for me to handle. Even the food court lines were ridiculous. The only line that had a reasonable wait was the hot-dog stand! God knows I hate anything wrapped in casing, i.e, hot-dogs or sausages, but at that point I was on the verge of passing out, so a monkey will eat pepper when they’re hungry.
While we were standing in line I couldn’t help but to people watch. There were a few times, when all I could do was shake my head in pity and tried my hardest to fight back the laughter.
Someone please answer me this…..
Why are women nowadays walking Christmas trees? I can’t count how many over accessorized women I noticed at the mall.
Big dangling earrings, big bangle bracelets, big furry boots, big furry coats!
What happened to the idea that LESS IS MORE?
When I walk past you, I shouldn’t hear your jewelry still making noise.
You shouldn’t set off the store’s theft sensors every time you walk in & out!
Some of the women I saw make Mr. T and Tammy Faye Baker look like Plain Janes!
Here’s a hint before you leave your house. If you think you resemble the Christmas Tree that’s in your living room, then you might want to go back in and take off some of the jewelry!
Remember, less is more!

    Yes, less is better.

    I went so far as not to put up a tree this year.

    I hate crowds. I really do. That’s why I do most of my shopping online.
