Countdown

Here in the US, the day after Thanksgiving is called Black Friday because it is considered to be the busiest shopping day of the year. The malls and stores are full of crazy shoppers because there are only 30 more days until Christmas as of today. I usually don't go shopping around this time because I don't like the crowds, rude people, the traffic, and the fights over a parking place. San Diego shoppers - how excited are you about the new Bloomingdale's at Fashion Valley that opened one week ago?!

I don't go shopping that day either. I do more and more of my Christmas online so I don't have to fight the crowds.

Me neither. Venturing into the Fash Valley Mall this weekend seems to me the height of folly.

Nothing more American! I keep thinking I need to take a picture of Delta's mall, but I have not figured out the right angle to use for the door :)

I think I read somewhere that indoor shopping malls were created by the French a very long time ago (which kind of surprised me...I don't know why though).

Bloomingdale's is my favorite store!
