Today begins A Very Hoosier Holiday, a guest blogging extravaganza right here on little Indiana!
Anyone is welcome to participate as long as they follow one important rule: the post must pertain to winter or the holiday season. Prepare to read an awesome variety of seasonal postings over the month of December.
Post-Thanksgiving Day 24-Hour Sale at Macy’s
I know I look good and I’m really so proud.
I’m the first one they’ll see; I’m in front of the crowd!
Combed Egyptian cotton, hand-dyed sage green,
Trimmed in lace from Scotland. I’m the finest ever seen.
Well, I won’t be here long, won’t be hanging around.
Wait! What is she doing? She’s marking me down!
Still hanging here and I’m really quite bored.
Someone better buy me; I won’t be ignored!
Ooh, those women fighting for the gown by Dior
Just knocked a poor gentleman down to the floor!
For twelve hours now, the stampede hasn’t slowed.
My buttons are dingy; this morning they glowed.
I’ve been handled and wrinkled; I feel so abused.
Is that me in the mirror? I look like I’m used!
It’s all over now, the first pre-Christmas rush.
And I’m still hanging here; I’ve been mangled and crushed.
There was pulling and kicking and ripping and swearing.
Thought I’d be the gift that some star would be wearing.
Now, she’s coming my way with a rack and a box.
No! She’s throwing me in with the overstock!
This holiday shopping silliness was brought to you by someone who plans to shop small this holiday season. I’ve earmarked 50% of my gifting budget to small businesses this year. Please join me in supporting local business owners.

She has two children, two grandchildren and lives with The World’s Greatest Husband in Hammond, Indiana. She envisions a future of penning delightfully entertaining best-sellers from her office in a tree house overlooking a river (sometimes it’s a lake or an ocean).
