Christmas shopping

The New Thrift or simply "Consumption Satiation"

 So, Christmas Eve wasn’t the saviour that the retailers expected. In conversations with retailers, it seems that even Christmas Eve sales were down. As one said to me, “This is the quietest Christmas Eve that I can remember.”

 

That said, it seems that grocery sales were up leading up to Christmas. Gluttony takes another form?
