Since shopping and buying gifts for the holidays have become so integrated into society’s year-end habitual consumer machine, it’s only natural to follow suit and give into the shopping holiday spirit. As parents, we will do anything for our kids to make the holiday that much more enchanting and special. I know this because my 15-month-old daughter is the first grandchild on both sides of the family, so yah – she’s pretty damn enamored with Christmas.
However, there are some giving folks who have taken to the streets, or Omaha Kmarts to be more specific, to make Christmas special for random families. I like this. I think people like this as well – hopefully not too much.
If I lived in Omaha and found out about this you bet your jolly sweet ass I’d be running out the door to a Kmart, look for a suitor, and put sh*t on layaway.
Interesting fact: Behemoth retailers Target nor Walmart offer layaway. Sears does, but the parent company, Sears Holdings Corporation owns both Kmart and Sears.
I just hope this isn’t an ingenious marketing ploy by Kmart to entice shoppers into a family game of “Santa Chance” – if it is revealed as such, I swear to some f*ckin’ jolly fat dude that I will post a video of myself giving a standing ovation in front of Kmart as an update to this article.
Until then, I’ll just keep believing in humanity.
