All gifts would be made of the cheapest possible materials available in China or maybe Malaysia by vast armies of workers making a dollar a day.
Stockings are filled with cheap toys that break as soon as the kids take them out and candy in odd colors flavored red, green, and white – whatever those are.
Clothes are produced in just one design and only 4 color choices.
Sizes and cut of the clothes are strange – certainly not what the buying public is used to – and don’t fit any normal humans.
Defects are not weeded out before shipment to the stores, so you never know if you have zippers with pulls, buttons that have matching buttonholes, or linings that your arms can fit through.
The stores only receive one shipment of these seasonal items and they arrive 6 months ahead of the holiday.
The number of ugly and useless items is far greater than any possible good deals, but the good deals are the only ones advertised.
You spend twelve hours standing in line for one of the advertised computers only to have some stocker toss them over your head and into the crowd at the designated sale hour. The only customers to get these items are the ones who just walked into the area.
When you try to return the gifts that don’t fit more than a day after Christmas and you don’t have your receipt, the price has been cut by 75%.
You can’t exchange it for something that does fit or that you will use because the store is already sold out and will not be getting any more.
