Stylish Christmas Tree Star


Shops in Panama are loaded to the hilt of Christmas merchandise.  December is anticipated as a month of lots of money.  The birth of baby Jesus has been placed on the back burner.  “Greed is good said Gordon Geckko in the famous Wall Street film.

Good Day!

  1. Hola Omar,
    Here we call it “Christmas Creep”. It describes the stores displaying Christmas items earlier than the day after Thanksgiving. The Target store chain is making some news by resisting Christmas Creep that they say is in response to their customers’ feedback. A few years ago, employees of some stores were doing petitions to management to have more time with their families during the holidays. I do not know if they were successful.

    The “peace on earth, good will to men” message is harder to hear each year.
    Feliz Navidad

    1. Hola Jim y Nena:

      In Panama, Christmas is a “live or die” situation. If your sales are high during Christmas, you have it made, since sales plummet after this feverish season. Millions and millions of dollars circulate the economy in December and people spend like zombies, totally out of their mind. It is a psychological case as far as I’m concerned.

      Peace is a very fragile word as we all know. War is around the corner is almost every corner of the world. We love war, even though we shout out loud that our goal is worldwide peace. A clear example is the situation with North Korea.
