We're in the midst of the last flurry of holiday shopping, and boy is it exciting! Everyone seems flushed with the pressure and thrill of the last-minute inspiration, though that may also be the heat wave (40 degrees! Sweltering!). My favorite part is the Harvard Square business camaraderie--having the Harvard Book Store send us customers looking for Harriet the Spy, and I bet The Games People Play loved us, once we sold out of Operation. Three cheers for independents and the Miracle on 34th Street-style Christmas spirit!
For the young and old alike anxious for the telltale clatter of hooves on the roof, you can follow the jolly man's progress at Norad Tracks Santa, an interactive world map with videos and photos of Santa's stops. Our book buyer Donna has the website going in our chapter book room so we can exclaim to customers, "He's in Dudinka, Russia RIGHT NOW!"
We'll be closing today at 5 pm, so make sure you get everything you need by then! If there are any problems, we can take back Christmas presents with receipt until the 31st of January.
And of course, have a very joyous holiday, however you celebrate it!
