Slang Gang Word of the day

December 30: Amazonukkah

When Christmas really lasts 8 days because the presents take longer to deliver from than anticipated by the purchaser. This is often caused by the reckless use of Super Saver Shipping on items which were bought on Christmas Eve. As a result, the presents are received in small amounts each day over an 8 day period, similar to Hanukkah.

Kid 1: Did you get everything you wanted for Christmas?

Kid 2: I dunno, we're celebrating Amazonukkah this year. My parents are real procrastinators.

**Still waiting for the dude in brown to bring more boxes myself!**

Yeah I can relate! I am a BIG Amazon shopper because basically I hate the mall.
This definately will be one of my holidays in the future!!

Happy New Years Eve!

King of Queens...that's my guy. Hope he personally delivered your Amazon stuff. I signed up to follow you because I like your take on life. You might want to drop by my place for a reciprocal bit of good cheer.

We are still waiting for something I bought on eBay December 8th.
Somebody is going to get some negative feedback.
