Chris Erskine: Why to start your holiday shopping NOW – Los Angeles Times


One relative of mine took back a tree she didn’t like to the tree lot — removed the ornaments, stuffed it back in the car trunk like a mob hit and returned it, with wisps of tinsel in her hair. We make the same tactical mistakes, fall foolishly behind, rally, attack the mall, fail, then come to resent the season a little — the fatigue, the foolish obligation, the same emotional slush year after year. So when I urge you to start your holiday shopping a little early, it’s positive change I’m after (as opposed to negative change, which covers most change).
