To heck with Cyber Monday!
Might as well come straight out and say it. Why would we want to celebrate a day when we all get on our computers and phones, ignore the bright crisp jostling magnificent world around us, and spend our time, love, and money buying stuff from warehouses 1,000 miles away?
Skip it! Take a walk through fallen leaves with your kid or BFF or parrot. Find a moment alone for a cup of frothy cocoa or an amber-glowing boulevardier. Visit the nearest cheery cheesemonger and make a fondue with a dash or ten of Super Spice Bitters! Put those bitters in your cocoa or boulevardier while you’re at it. Dust off the old game of Parcheesi, light a fire in the fireplace, and spin a few records! To heck with Cyber Monday!
If the shopping bug is really biting you, why not go out and spend a few bucks with one of the mom and pop retailers that make up the backbone of your community? Say hi to your neighbors while you’re at it.
Of course, if shopping cyber-style really is what you’re jonesing for, or maybe if you just miss us at The Meadow and don’t live close enough to make it in for a visit in person, here are a few festive wonders from our world of salt, chocolate, bitters, and flowers.
3 ways to bring happiness home.
