Growing up I was lucky during the holidays. My mom would remember to buy batteries in case the toys Santa brought me ever needed them. Seriously, unwrapping a toy and then being excited to play with it only to find out I had to wait until the next day when stores that sold batteries were open would have been disappointing!
So every year during the holidays since I am now Santa’s helper I make sure to pick up some batteries for whatever arrives under the tree. Of course, nowadays stores that sell batteries are open on Christmas Day but I don’t want to take chances with all the Christmas morning memories. And when my children open their Christmas gifts it is such a delight to see their faces, pausing that wouldn’t be much holiday fun.
I already have packs of Duracell Coppertop Alkaline batteries all ready to go this holiday season for when Santa brings toys and games from my kids’ wish lists.
I trust Duracell to be my #1 long-lasting battery because at CBS the wireless mic packs use Duracell batteries. And if it’s good enough for live TV to trust, I have no need to worry that after a few hours of play, the toy will die. (Come on, you know you’ve been there! A toy with batteries of inferior quality just stops working after a few hours.)
I’m prepared so my children can have fun on Christmas morning. Now all I have to worry about is staying awake the night before so we attend midnight mass!
