I went to Hobby Lobby last night to pick up a crochet booklet, some yarn, and a package of crochet hooks so I can teach my ten-year-old niece how to crochet. At the checkout, I said “Merry Christmas” to the clerk. She replied with a hearty, “Merry Christmas to you!”
I was at Wal-Mart on Friday to pick up a couple of things. I said “Merry Christmas” to the greeter and she said, “to you too.” The checkout clerk replied to my “Merry Christmas” with a “same to you.”
Last year I was out shopping with my mother and she said “Merry Christmas” to a clerk. The clerk seemed slightly taken aback at first, then said “Merry Christmas to you too”.
After Mom and I left the store, we concluded that with all the “can’t say Christmas” going on, she was shocked that we had wished her a Merry Christmas. Then she was happy that we had and wished us one as well.
