But if you are a citizen of the Realm, one who dwells in Her Majesty's Commonwealth, then today is the day to shop and save.
Much like the tradition of the colonies on the day after Thanksgiving, subjects of Her Majesty's Commonwealth queue up and get some goodies on sale. It's an official holiday in Canada, the UK, Scotland, Ireland, Australia, to name some of the countries in the civilized world that celebrate Boxing Day.
Speaking of England, we are closely following the condition of the Duke of Edinburgh who was hospitalized with chest pains late last week and underwent cardiac catheterization.
Prince Philip, HRH's Husband, is 90 years old and was otherwise in tip top condition, keeping up a schedule of over 400 appearances a year. Perhaps it is time to cut back a bit?
Courts in Miami are definitely closed today. Who's set for trial tomorrow? Who's going to trial? On the last week of the last year in the last century (1999 for our robed readers) we were in the third week of a trial that ended New Year's Eve. What's your Xmas/New Year's Eve trial story?
Unlike other blogs, we blog 24/365. *
See You In Court.
*We're not saying we don't take vacations, we're just saying we never close.
