    When the fat lady sings
    Do you know when the fat lady sings?

    As far as I can tell it's 3 pm EST tomorrow. That seems to be the outside limit to when merchants will guarantee delivery by December 24th.

    It ain't over 'til it's over.

    Around the end of January. After Christmas, everyone will rush out to spend those Christmas checks and some buy what they REALLY wanted but didn't get.

    January was almost as good as December for me last year.

    Could be a Pagan thing, though. Not too many people give you the pentacle necklace you were dying for.

    THAT'S what yummy Christmas checks are for!

    Well, no and yes! You have to get the Christmas sites down but you have to have merchandise up! Those feeds should be ready to go and you should be working on post Christmas stuff for sure!

    I think the question is, is the buying over. It has a ways to go, yet. After a couple of days break for celebration, they will be buying with those Christmas checks. And, treating themselves.

    It is over when the bills come in January.

    At Rugman.com we've made arrangements with FedEx to offer all shoppers until tomorrow to get last minute orders placed, whereby we can guarantee pre-holiday arrival of our Persian Area Rugs.

    Incidentally, if you haven't already seen my thread on Free overnight shipping for gift certificates, we're offering that as well (in US & Canada) - until 4pm EST tomorrow - tomorrow being December 22nd, 2005.

    Happy Holidays everyone!
