Bells are ringing in my ears.
What’s up with all the Salvation Army bell-ringers out in force so early in the season? I don’t want to sound like a Grinch, as I really do love Christmas, and believe in giving to charity. However, I have bell-ringing fatigue. Immediately after Thanksgiving, the ringers are out in front of about every major store you go to. I think it’s overkill. If only they would wait until one week before Christmas. Surely everyone goes shopping at least once during that last week, so the S.A. shouldn’t lose much by waiting. Actually, I bet they would get increased revenue, as it would seem a lot more special to donate then.
