The Day Before Christmas In Idaho Falls

Here's our rhyming report on the chaos.

IDAHO FALLS, Idaho -

Last-minute shoppers swarmed stores all over Idaho Falls. Here's our rhyming report on the chaos. Enjoy.

'Twas the day before Christmas
And all through the town,
Not one empty parking space could even be found.

Last-minute shoppers driving in by the ton,
Chronic procrastinators, from far and near:
"We're last-minute shoppers every year."

Excuses, excuses,
Like schedules, packed fat.
“Lots of work and school and dance recitals and all that."

But still, there were plenty of gifts to be had.
In the spirit of Christmas,
"It's not too bad"

The shoppers were friendly,
No pushing or shoving.
Just shows this community is one full of loving.

"Chaos big time," but Merry Christmas for all.

There was still a little time to get some last minute shopping in Monday. Walmart was to be open until 8, and Target will until 9.
