Thousands of people, hundreds of thousands, will be standing in front of you in line waiting to return or exchange the ill-fitting clothing for something else.
It's also a big day for people to try out the gift cards which replaced large boxes covered in wrapping paper with small envelopes.
I have one gift card to try out and combined with a coupon will hopefully turn into a nice sweatshirt or cap. (I can never have enough caps.)
The return game with it's gift receipts and wrong sizes virtually guarantees a long wait at the store, so be prepared.
(Here's a quick note for gift buyers purchasing clothes for friends or loved ones - if you aren't sure of the size, guess smaller than you think. You may be wrong, but do you want someone to believe you think they wear 4-X?)
This year for Christmas I received some very nice gifts: a bluetooth speaker, a Milwaukee Bucks cap, Brewers t-shirt, lots of cookies, and slippers. The shirt and slippers fit just fine, so I won't be in line today.
In fact I think I'll wait a day or two before venturing inside a mall with that little gift card.
May you have many happy returns.
