Boxing Day Sales

I must have been crazy to venture anywhere near the shops yesterday. Queuing began at dawn, elbowing the norm, arms loaded with bags. I need a coffee just thinking about it.
Tradition has boxing day the first day of a three day sale bonanza. Then the rest of January is sales. Economic crisis? Hard to imagine if you were any where near Oxford St.

Queuing is always fun.

There seem to be sales all year round at present. Amazing that so many people were able to get so excited about them. Couldn't have anything else to do on Boxing Day, I guess.

Yup, we have that in Canada as well. You want crazy though? You should see how the Americans behave on Black Friday. One woman pepper sprayed people this year, they're nuts!!!
