Shopping styles have changed a lot for everyone ever since we have to deal with COVID-19 constantly as we go about our lives .Shopping for our daily needs as well as for special occasions take more into prominence now that the Christmas shopping season is already here.
Economically, COVID-19 had hurt the retail and non-essential services sector gravely. These businesses have now returned but to a limited capacity due to COVID-19 safety precautions. They lost a lot of revenue from decreased consumer spending and are aching to recover fast. The Christmas profit represents 25% of yearly profit. If they do not make it, they will close by the end of this year.
As these retail folks said in 1 battle cry: “We Need This!“
Please support the retail business through responsible shopping. Support especially your local businesses as much as possible because they also pay local taxes which help support funding in services and infrastructure in your local community. Whether it is a gift basket or even a gift card through online shopping or even dropping by a physical store, it can make a big difference. Also, these retail folks could be your friend or neighbor supporting themselves and their families as well.
Shop till you drop as they say but do it well and carefully.
I personally will still celebrate Christmas this year (2020) and I will definitely shop for Christmas because I will not let COVID-19 steal my thunder nor rain on my parade.
We can do this, folks!!!!
Dear Mr. Alex Trebek,
I heard yesterday about your passing. This made me feel quite sad since I had always enjoyed watching your game show “Jeopardy” through the years. My knowledge of trivia has increased from all the questions you gave out to the contestants.
It was an amazing fact that you had hosted “Jeopardy” for 36 seasons which made you a legendary host by reputation.
You may have become an American institution but you never forgot your Canadian roots.
You are a class act of a person whether on-screen or off-screen.
Whoever will replace you as host of “Jeopardy” has huge shoes to fill.
May you rest in peace and I wish you well in your journey to the afterlife.
Sincerely from your fellow Canuck,
Dear Sir/Madam Editor,
It is me again! I had sent you a letter last Sept.10,2020 regarding the possible choice of Time Person of the Year 2020. I had mentioned COVID-19 as a non-human choice and the frontline health workers as the human choice for the honor.
In this very unpredictable pandemic year, I am writing to you again regarding suggesting possible equal billing for the title of Time Person of the Year.
This time, I would like to nominate the American citizens who have exercised their right to suffrage as well as the employees of each American state electoral agencies in making democracy possible by counting every ballot submitted in .
As they say in their constitution,”We the people,” “The people have spoken”.
The United States is known worldwide as the bedrock of democracy and not that of dictatorship. It carries the gold standard for freedom for other countries to emulate.
I rest my case,Sir/Madam Editor.
May you enjoy the rest of this very challenging year as well as the upcoming Yuletide season.
