It is every blogger's sworn duty to heap mounds of scorn on the things that bother or irritate us. Ok, so we're not actually sworn in, but based on the way most people blog, it seems like that were the case.
My point is that while complaining about the ills of society and bringing attention to stupidity and abuse are vital (and fun) activities, it is equally as important for us to band together and promote the positives by saluting those who are actually doing it right.
Today, the company that deserves our praise is Nordstrom's. Check out this sign found outside one of their stores:
Christmas creep is a problem of greed and of commercialization of holidays. It's an assault on our peace of mind and of the very few American traditions that we have. Or put simply, Christmas creep ruins Christmas. No music, no decorations, no nothing until AFTER Thanksgiving. It has always been and will always be that way in my house and I respect and support any company with the guts to keep to the same policy.
Nordstrom's, for today at least, you are my friend.Tags: Christmas, Holidays, Nordstroms, Retailers
