DH works for WalMart and of course at the holidays he is there more than he is here. I try to look forward to Christmas Eve at 6pm because that signals the end of the chaos of extra hours and extra days at work. We live an hour away from his store so Christmas Eve starts at 7pm for us with a yummy dinner and the kids opening one present. Well, this week WalMart decided to stay open until 8pm on Christmas Eve for those shoppers who just cant seem to fit in their gift buying in the other bazillion hours before Christmas. So, he will be stuck there until 8pm and not getting home until 9pm. Thats a bit late for dinner. This is my theory about Christmas gift buying, if you wait until Christmas Eve to buy my gift... I dont want it. I think that ALL stores should close at 3pm and allow workers to spend time with their families. Boycott anyone?
