Picture it: Anywhere, USA; Christmas morning (gotta love my Golden Girls reference)
It’s the most exciting morning of the year. After the most anxious night of sleep, the kids are up bright and early demanding that the entire household join them in exploring whatever magic has been left under the tree.
The gift-opening process is slightly orchestrated with the intent of prolonging the excitement for as long as possible. First gift – the necessities– socks, undershirts, thermals, etc. Excitement: minimal. Then on to the second gift, third, fourth, and so on; each providing an increasing level of excitement.
Finally, they get to the grand gift. This is the gift that has been the topic of many dinner conversations, talks with Santa and even referred to as the one thing they’ve wanted “their entire lives.” They open the gift and just as we imagined, their little hearts are filled with excitement. They are beyond eager to tear the box apart and put that toy into good use. Just then, a quiet pause fills the room. The toy is not working as expected. Next step, we grab the box to see what could be the problem and come across these 3 dreaded words: Batteries Not Included! *insert expletive here*
Christmas is right around the corner and while I’m out finishing up my holiday shopping and trying to master the holiday, this is the one all to common holiday scenario that comes to mind. Time and time again, the phrase “batteries not included” has crushed holiday cheer. In fact, according to a survey conducted by Energizer® in 2016 with more than 1,000 respondents, 90 percent of Americans have forgotten batteries for a holiday gift in the past – leaving millions of parents with some pretty disappointed kids who we can guarantee will not be hiding their upset.
Sure, we know there are worse things in the world, but we have to admit, it’s a pretty big Christmas buzzkill. Most of the hottest gift items out there require at least a couple of batteries each. Not to mention the ongoing need for batteries to power our electronics, lights and decor before Christmas morning! Thankfully, that’s where Energizer can step in to relieve holiday cheer!
