The day after Thanksgiving, as far back as I can remember, was always the beginning of the Christmas season. That’s when it is ok to play Christmas carols, to decorate your house, and start baking sinfully delicious cookies. It’s also time to start shopping!

I give those willing to endure the lines on Black Friday kudos; I have absolutely no patience for lines. My shopping is fairly limited to a few precious weeks, unless something inspired me months before (that has happened on a few occasions). The invention of online shopping has made the holidays so much easier. Instead of waiting in lines and rummaging through overstocked clothing racks and stepping over under-supervised children, I can spend more time doing the aforementioned activities.

For those of you who are weather enthusiasts or know a weather enthusiast (and if you are visiting this website, chances are you like weather) a really great place for some online shopping is the weather store. We have lots of weather stations, educational toys (what kid doesn’t want to build his or her own robot?), and a plethora of Mount Washington memorabilia. If you really want to impress the weather nerd in your life, you can always sign them up for one of our overnight Edu-trips, where you can experience the amazing weather first-hand.

Speaking of shopping, I better get started!
