Celebrate, Honor, Remember
We enjoy so many freedoms in this great country that we tend to forget the many men and women who died to gain those freedoms for us.
May we never forget freedom isn’t free.
We’re probably all finished or at least down to the wire with gift buying and are ready to wrap (pun intended) it all up!
When I working in retail many, many years ago (20), gift bags were not the way to go. One of my tasks working in the display department was to wrap empty boxes for displays and do the gift-wrap wall so customers would gladly pay for a “professionally” wrapped gift. Trust me. I was good at gift-wrapping. And I learned a few things along the way.
Believe it of not, 99.7%* of gift recipients prefer to unwrap a gift instead of pull it out of a tissue-paper-filled bag.
What do you prefer to do? Unwrap or dig-for-your gift?
I thought so. You prefer to unwrap a gift. Who wants to dig for their gift unless you are an archeologist?
So, here are my (ergonomically correct) thoughts on gift wrapping.
Good luck with your gift wrapping.
I actually do all of these things before I wrap any gifts. I have learned the hard way to not trust my memory. And my back thanks me every year.
BTW, Mr. Aitch either gifts with gift bags or has the gift sent already wrapped. Some people just don’t have the confidence with paper wrapping and that’s ok.

I hope your Thanksgiving Day is full of blessings and love.
