Salvation Army Bell Ringers Redux
It's that time of year again and I have to admit I love the sound of the Salvation Army bell as it echos across the parking lot. I know ringing the bell is not easy work on a cold night.
Last night, I watched a guy go out of his way, wide circle to the right at Harris Teeter just to avoid walking past the Army bell ringer working the Stonecrest store.
Guilt is such a powerful force! Give it up! It won't kill you!
I don't know why but I like the process of folding a ten dollar bill in half and then half again and pushing it into the red kettle or maybe its just the joy in saying Merry Christmas on a cold winter's night.
Even more so when it's Mrs. Cedar ringing the bell.
Last year's post about the Salvation Army is here.
