Christmas shopping until 3 am

Is there a place in the world where commercial business will open on December 23 until 3 AM?

As we are

Is there a place in the world where commercial business will open on December 23 until 3 AM? Or is it just us? Because what I can answer, I see it coming, is that greedy capitalists and desperate consumerists are everywhere (which is true, I will not deny it), but I think what makes the difference, the Argentine differential, is the fact that we are not only consumerists, above all we are consumerists of ú last moment.

How can we get into shopping on December 23 (when we should be opening the first cider of the season) at 2 AM (when we should be sleeping or meeting friends) to buy a shirt and a pair of flops? Why the hell didn't we do it before? If from January 1 we know that christmas falls on December 24, why do we let ourselves be? Also, suppose we couldn't do it before, is it so necessary to bring the gift on the 24th? Can't we give it to your corresponding beneficiary the following week? And here, again, we have no other than going back to a topic that we have dealt with at some point: we love to queue, we love to love chaos, we love to think that everything is a little more complicated than it really is, as if that gives us some argument to be martyred or to feel that we are making a huge effort on behalf of others, but no. We just leave it for the last minute. “We hang”, as we like to say to Argentines.
