Shared Holiday Traditions

Shopping Pikeview ApartmentsThe holidays are approaching and it’s a great time to share some of our family traditions.  Andrea O’Meara, manager at Pikeview Apartments, tells us how she gets a fun start on her holiday shopping.

“Every year after Thanksgiving dinner, my sister, my cousins and I brave the crowds and cold weather for Black Friday shopping. We organize the sales papers and map out our nightly journey- from who has the best deals on movies and games to what hot item is being offered where and when.  We understand that many people find dealing with the crowds to be too aggravating and I will be the first to admit that sometimes the crowds are bothersome.  However, we embrace the craziness and enjoy spending the time together.

We shop, take a break for breakfast at IHOP, shop some more, do lunch and then usually wrap up the madness in the late afternoon.  Yes, we fight the crowds and sometimes the aggravation sets in when dealing with the ‘crazy’ customer who just has to get the last TV; however, the time spent I get to spend with my family is worth it all.”
