The above quote comes from the classic Christmas/holiday movie Holiday Inn. Bing Crosby sings Irving Berlin’s words beautifully, as he did with any lyrics that came his way. I don’t know how fond of a good-bye most of us will give to 2017; it has been a trying year, one many of us would rather forget, and I agree with those who are in that boat. But there are more than a few positives for me, so I leave this year with mixed feelings. Among them has been the growth of the comic, which leaves a great deal to look forward to in the coming year. (Keep an eye out in January for the opening our online store! Gonna have lots of fun stuff available!)
Regardless of what you made of 2017 in your mind, this comic grew stronger over the course of the year, and that would not have been possible without all of you reading and commenting and sharing the comic like you have. You guys have made this possible and made me want to keep going, and for that, I can never say thank you enough.
So, from all of us here at “Observations in Retail” to all of you around the world, let’s drink a toast to the close of 2017 and the bright start of a wonderful 2018! Here’s to all you wonderful people out there, you amazing comrades. Here’s to an amazing new year for all of you!
