Less than 2 months away already.
Anyone started shopping for family and friends yet?

I didn't either, but a friend reminded me.
I like Christmas, getting the family together, and having a great time. The entire shopping thing is frustrating. Kids are easy to shop for because they just want toys. Its the adults that give me the prob. Well that plus the long lines and shopping rush.

I'm not even putting a Christmas tree up this year. I purchased a poinsettia and 2 amaryllis. I think that might be all I'm doing. As for shopping, I don't shop either (I guess you think I'm a scrooge) but I love Christmas just not what it has become. You can spend a LOT OF money on Christmas money that you can really don't have and some don't even like what you get them.I send a letter with my Christmas cards to family and friends.

And Black Friday I can't imagine going out at 4 a.m. or 5 a.m. to shop.

HA! Got news for you it now starts at midnight. I believe it was K-mart who was open at midnight. The outlets near me were open at midnight, Old Navy opened at 3am and some other place opened at 4am. The wimps like Walmart, Sears and J.C. Penny opened at 5am.

Before you get the idea I'm some sort of psycho shopper I would like to say I got all of this from advertisements and my DH. You couldn't pay me to leave the quiet of the farm on Black Friday.

I wonder when they'll when they'll start opening on Thanksgiving afternoon! They can hardly wait to push it aside as it is.

I don't do the black Fri. shopping either. Getting trampled by a mob doesn't sound too appealing and there's nothing I need bad enough to put up with it. Being stuck in traffic that time of day wouldn't be good either. If I need anything, I go in the afternoon when it's more sane.
