A Biennial Christmas Eve Event?

The way things turned out, a larger space at the storage place was available (I've been on a waitlist since May) and the deadline for moving out of the old space and into the new one was Christmas Eve.

I couldn't help but feel a little déja vu and remember unpacking my UHaul truck on Christmas Eve two years ago.   I hired movers to unpack back then, but this year, I schlepped the things I had in storage myself.  Beside the person working there, I was the only person in the building ... which was a good thing because, as it turned out, everything had to move from one end of the long building to the other end--at least both spaces were on the same floor.  Here's the scene,  2 years ago ago in Dallas and 2 days ago.

Unloading on Christmas Eve A new Christmas Eve Tradition?

I guess it's true--the more things change, the more they remain the same ... but I'm hoping this does NOT become a Christmas Eve tradition for me ;-)

I was really dreading it because I figured it would ruin my whole day, but the fact is that I was done in less than 90 minutes.

Oh my! I certainly hope this isn't a new tradition!

Why would they set the deadline on Christmas eve? Did they think people were going to move lots of stuff in on Christmas day?

Maybe some people get so much stuff for Christmas they have to pack it up and move it immediately to a storage place.
