We didn't see many "Christmas sales" this year.. The major vendors such as the department stores, appliance discounters, etc.. all had Holiday Sales... But, now that Christmas is gone (good riddence*), we have all kinds of "after Christmas sales",, Christmas is back on the banners and fliers now that it is time to unload junk that was too pricy before Christmas.. I think even Andy Rooney was aware this was going to happen. Doesn't anyone else care that the true meaning of the holiday is gone??? Only in America I guess. *If the day is only recognized as a way to bolster the economy, or line some rich bitches pockets,, then I don't need it or want it.
