Christmas shopping in N.J. — before big box stores & the Internet

Christmas shopping in N.J. — before big box stores & the Internet

JOURNEYS INTO NEW JERSEY

Well, seasonal craziness seems to have started. Just when you thought things were already hectic enough, here come the holidays. So much to do; so little time. I love this time of year. The lights, the music, the festiveness.

But then there is that other part.

For example, drive along our state's roads and it can be almost dizzying. All the stores, all the malls, all the congestion.

Moreover, at least to me, it all looks so much the same these days. From Route 17 to Route 18; 46; 23; 35; 73 – it's all so similar – the Jersey barrier, the fast food joints, and chain stores. Home Dept, Lowes, Target, Barnes and Noble, IHOP, Holiday Inn Express; Sleepy's, etc. Can you tell Paramus from Totowa from Marlton?

It all got us to thinking about how different it all was not too long ago.
