In honor of this New Year’s Eve which falls on a Thursday, meaning some of you onesies and twosies may actually have to work today, I thought I’d share this great article from WaPo that highlights those sparse few who have to endure the week between Christmas and New Years at the office. Hilarious!
For the workers, it was a lonely holiday week at the office
Since I’ve been an “adult” and able to sustain on more than Raman, I’ve enjoyed adopting an angel from the Angel Tree every year. Its a nice way to give back to someone who might not otherwise have a Christmas morning. And because you are actually handling the shopping yourself, you are able to make sure they are well-stocked with clothing and of course have a few toys to enjoy on Christmas morning.
This year, I had a bit of trouble locating an actual Angel Tree to take an angel and shop for. Granted, most of the time I am able to find these easily in suburban malls…but if you’ve ever been to NYC, you know that those are not really readily accessible. So a few weeks ago when I started my search, I started to panic a bit because it was not as easy as I thought.
And then I found the JC Penney Online Angel Tree — (http://angel.jcpenney.com/).
This is an amazing and VERY EASY way to help out this season. You can do all of your shopping online, in just a few minutes. Information on your Angel is readily available, and they will ship it (FOR FREE) directly to a local Salvation Army near you (be sure to include your Angel’s ID so that all your gifts get to the correct child). AND, they even give you a promo code to receive a discount.
If you have 10 free minutes, and anything to spare this holiday season, check it out and please give someone a happy Christmas morning if you can. I grew up with many blessed, exciting and warm/cozy holiday mornings, and what a great thing to share that with just one child if we can.
Happy Christmakkuh all!
