Merry Christmas everyone and we hope all your prayers are answered. For Christians this day is a very holy day. I am Catholic and we at Shockwave.us offer our prayers and may Jesus answer your prayers.
Many shelves have been depleted of Christmas decorations and toys, our grocery stores had many shelves empty but the most insane was the meat department in my local supermarket. For the first time I can recall, the shelves were completely empty in the shelves where there are normally discounted meats were sold out, which means the recession has hit the people full bore.
But we are lucky for we have Costco store, and they had plenty of everything except eggs, which we picked up at Walmart, then we bought our vegetables at the 99 cent store. Next stop was Aldis store where we bought the big bucket of ice cream. Last year, this bucket cost 5 dollars, but this year the price had jumped to $8.50 per bucket. All other food items were also about 20% to 50% higher than last Christmas.
