Margery's Friends with a Community Christmas TreeEveryone is bustling around at my place, getting ready for the holidays. The day before Thanksgiving, I saw a woman pushing a big cart. I was curious and asked what she was doing. She told me she was getting her Christmas decoration out of her storage locker before the big rush for the carts after Thanksgiving.

As I write this on the Friday after Thanksgiving, I am curious if any of my buddies here braved the crowds and shopped on Black Friday. Read on to know what December is like at this senior residence.
