Signs of the season show major changes

NEW CASTLE — Editor, The News:

It seems this year there were fewer houses decorated, maybe fewer wreaths on the door and hardly any lighted trees in the front widows.

We did send cards, but the ones that came in were not the ones we sent to, just figure.

To be a true shopper, you had to get up at 5 a.m. That’s when the door busters came out.

Once you found the perfect gift, boxed it and wrapped it, it was 40 percent off the next day. And if you waited a week, it was 60 percent off.

Of course, people still took holiday pictures, only not with a camera but their telephone.

Of course, they never will be printed out, and certainly never enlarged. But you will have some great 2-by-3-inch pictures.

The three wise men are Kmart, Target and Walmart.

Even the church is out of sync and midnight is now at 6:30 p.m.

You know what Scrooge said.

Would you want to know what your pet is thinking about you?

Yes! I'd love to know what my pet is thinking.
Nah, it's probably not that interesting.
I don't know. I'm afraid of what I might find out.
