An Alien in America

An alien's perspective on life and everything else

It’s happening again

Posted by nickxyz on August 28, 2007

Every year around this time, well actually, weeks before this time, all retail stores of all kinds, all business, pretty much everyone… gets in the “back to school” frenzy.

Back to school in the US unilateraly declares the end of summer. To possibly alleviate the psychological impacts to this strenuous facette of American society, sales are declared everywhere. One can save bundles not just on school supplies or school uniforms, but also on clothes in general, any type of jewlery, travel, even cars… (????) everything under the sun.

Is there truly an improvement of the personal state of mind possible by indulging in all these end of the season activities? Or could it just be an elaborate scam by US corporations to drive up sales mid year?

Any further theories and hypothesis are welcome
