Merry Blogmas: Day 5 – What Is It Like To Work Retail During The Christmas Season?


Graphic Credit:

I’m excited, I only have 20 days to go until Merry Blogmas ends for 2017. ☹☹ I’m happy I made it this far and if you’re participating and I know some of you are you should be happy you made it this far so give yourself an atta girl or atta boy.

I decided to write on What’s It Like To Work Retail For The Christmas Season?

 You see for 18 Christmas Seasons I worked during Christmas. No it wasn’t seasonal work either. I either worked full-time, part-time or part-time but worked full-time hours. I saw 18 Christmas Seasons go by until the store closed their doors in January of 2015. The stories I could tell you.

In fact, right after I started working retail I had this mother and her kids. She told me that they were on their way to the airport. She got mad at me when I told her she needed her receipt to return her items. She wasn’t happy she had to wait in line. Due to the fact it was the Christmas season there were a lot of people in line which didn’t make this woman happy either. She didn’t have the Christmas spirit despite our Christmas music and Christmas displays. She eventually went and got her receipt but it was unreadable because her one kid vomited on the receipt. She did pay cash but it went to the manager’s desk and the result is unknown. Every Christmas there was at least one Story if not more.

In the Same Christmas Season I had this elderly woman who wanted me to be her personal shopper. Had I done it for her before? Yes when it wasn’t as busy. However, this particular day it was not only busy but there were people waiting in line before her. What did I do? I took her aside and explained she had to wait her turn in line like the others and I would take care of her when it was her turn. The result? She was not happy. I asked my boss if what I did was the right thing to do and she agreed with me and she needed put in her place.

Each Christmas season the men would wait to the 23rd or 24th of December to do their shopping. They would come in and say to me she’s about your height and weight and money is no object. The result? I would take them to the most expensive sweater and show them the size I would buy if I were buying the sweater and they always walked away happy. It gave me the satisfaction to know I helped them find a Christmas gift. This happened every Christmas season. What I had to look forward to!!

Merry Blogmas Everyone: Day 4 – The Supermoon, Frost Moon, Harvest Moon Or Yule Moon

What Is A Supermoon?:

It’s the last full moon that occurred on December 3rd, 2017. It also is the last Supermoon or yule moon of 2017.

What Is The Supermoon Also called?:

The Supermoon is also called a Yule Moon, A Harvest moon and A Frost Moon. To learn how the moon got these names click on the link below. I suggest you do it’s interesting.

When Does The Supermoon Or Yule Moon Happen?: 

The Supermoon or yule happens when the moon is closest to the earth and this time it will appear for 3 days (Friday to Monday).

How Large Will The Supermoon Be And How Bright Will The Supermoon Be?: 

 The full moon or Supermoon will be a mere 492 km (306 miles) away from Earth, making it appear 13.6% larger in diameter and 29% larger in the area. It will also appear 7% more intense and brighter because the Earth will be closest to the sun.

What Was It Like To Witness The Supermoon or Yule Moon?:

It was an awesome sight. It was not only beautiful but bright too. It was framed or surrounded with colors of pinks, reds, greens, blues and yellows. So pretty to witness. It could have been a beacon in the sky it was so bright. I took pictures from 3 different angles. One on Zoom, One on Medium Zoom and One from far away.


It was a beautiful, bright moon framed in color. How appropriate, a colorful frame for a big and bright moon that shined like beacon in the sky. Also if you get the chance, click on the provided link and read about the Yule moon and how it got it name. The history behind it is interesting. I really hope you click on the link to read it.

🎄🎄🎄🎁🎁🎄🎄🎄Merry Blogmas Everyone: Day 3 – Christmas Childhood Memories That Stand Out🎄🎄🎄🎁🎁🎄🎄🎄


Graphic Credit:

For Day 3 of Merry Blogmas I have decided to do Christmas Childhood Memories. One of my first childhood memories is of a silver artificial Christmas that my 2 younger sisters and I would help put up but that wasn’t the cool part. The cool part was this color wheel with the colors of blues, yellows, greens and red. The color wheel we set up was shined on the silver Christmas tree. So when the wheel stopped on a certain color that’s what color the tree looked like. It was really pretty. The best part though was we opened 1 Christmas present on Christmas Eve and opened the rest on Christmas.

My 2nd childhood memory as a kid was when my Dad’s place of work went on strike and my grandfather helped mom get Santa’s gifts out of the attic. This particular Christmas Santa’s gifts were dolls that were as tall as my sisters and I if not taller. The dolls fell down the attic steps. We had a noisy Santa Clause that year.

My 3rd childhood memory was when my sisters and I were older I put a red Santa’s hat on my Grandfather’s head and then I took a picture as did someone else because I have that picture of him in the Santa’s hat with Grandma in the background framed. I look at it every morning.

These are the three childhood memories that stand out. I have plenty more memories but feel it in the best interest of time, I’m not listing them.

🎄🎄🎄🎁🎁🎄🎄🎄’Merry Blogmas’ Everyone: Day 1-Putting Up The CHRISTMAS Tree🎄🎄🎄🎁🎁🎄🎄🎄


Daisy Mae and Sister Crystal here and we would like to welcome you to our first ‘Merry Blogmas’ post. Just heard about it so my Day 1 is a day late. Whoops sorry about that.

You see when Sister Crystal told me about this ‘Merry Blogmas’ thing and because this is our first year blogging we thought we’d try it out.  I’m really excited about this ‘Merry Blogmas’ posting mostly because we just love Christmas and Sister Crystal’s birthday is near Christmas. If you want to go to her month-long birthday you can go to this link and it will take you there. The post link is: My Month-Long Birthday Party . Now back to my ‘Merry Blogmas’ post.

What to write about is what we thought about next. We decided on putting up the Christmas tree.

I got to help put the Christmas tree up and make sure the Christmas tree skirt was soft enough. I tried out the Christmas tree box and layed on the snowman tree skirt. It was not only soft enough but it was cute too. I left the Christmas decorations alone like a good little kitty. Below is a picture of me trying the Christmas tree box out and a picture of our Christmas tree all lit up. Sister Crystal, Mom and Dad put up the tree. They actually cheated. How? They put up a pre-lit tree to save time and put pretty and handmade decorations on the tree. It looks so pretty especially when lit.





Well Merry ‘Blogmas’ everyone from Daisy Mae and Sister Crystal.

An Invitation To My Month – Long Birthday Party


Graphic Is By:

Hello and welcome Everyone,

I’m the owner and administrator of WELCOME TO CRYSTAL’S SITE(ORIGINALLY COUNTRY LIVING) and CRYSTAL’S PHOTO-BLOGGING SITE . It’ll be my birthday next month and I’m planning to party all month. Why not-Right? I’d like to invite you all to my month-long birthday party. It starts December 1st and goes through December 31st.

You see this year I have reached another milestone in my life. I’m a half of a century old. That’s right, I’m 50 years old. I hope you all come over to both of my blogs to celebrate my birthday. I figure so what. Why? because I look at it this way 50 is only 14 in scrabble, 50 is 18 with 32 years experience and 50 is like 8 years in cat years.

I have to tell you all that for years I’ve been telling my family and everyone that mentions that I’m middle-aged that I’m not middle-aged to I’m 50. They laugh and call me the queen of denial. It’s just I don’t feel old or middle-aged and until I do, I won’t be middle-aged. 50 is just a number to me and I embrace every year as they come. I just feel fortunate to be celebrating another year and this year I want to celebrate my birthday with my blogging friends.
