With less than two weeks to go, the countdown to Christmas is definitely on now…isn’t it, dear readers??!
As recently as last Saturday, I was a little surprised by how “peaceful” my local shopping mall still seemed to be…but today was certainly a different story!! That last-minute holiday shopping frenzy I quite look forward to every year has finally begun!!
It would probably be a different story if I had a whole list of people that I needed to shop for; I imagine I’d be totally frazzled instead of enjoying myself!! But my hubby and I came to an agreement with our friends and family a number of years ago…no presents!! We’ve opted instead to spend time (not money!) with the special people in our lives, and it makes for a wonderfully stress-free holiday!!
But I’m quite sure that Robin and I are not the only ones that have eliminated – or at least minimized – the gift-giving part of the season!! I’d love to hear if you’ve opted to focus on festive get-togethers for the holidays…or if tearing into those pretty packages on Christmas morning is just waaay too much fun to resist!!
