I can’t even think about Hanukkah yet, which starts the night of Thanksgiving!

I’m actually planning on starting shopping this weekend 🙂 I love Christmas…so much more so than the “normal” person, IMO. I think this is  due to the fact that while I was still a baby, my father stopped being a Catholic and got sucked into the cult known as the Jehovas Witnesses and we never were allowed to have holidays 🙁  We weren’t allowed to celebrate our birthdays either… Oh well,…I’m VERY appreciative these days for every holiday I get to CELEBRATE!!!!!!

@arsing89:  OMG I LOVE CHRISTMAS TOO!!  I listen to christmas music at least once a week on pandora and I have already bought a christmas present thats on my list.  I even have a spreadsheet set up for my christmas list.  Definitely my favorite time of the year – already planning how I am gonna decorate!

My FI informed me that he is completely finished with his Christmas shopping for me! I’m shocked. He isn’t the type to start so early and I can’t even believe he was thinking about xmas in September and right before our wedding when we have so many other things going on.

I havent started, but I have some ideas for him. Other people? No idea what I’m going to do for them. I’ll start when we return from our honeymoon.

NO. When will people learn… no Christmas talk until at least the 1st of December.

When I am Queen of the Universe, anyone who mentions Christmas before December will be dressed up as an elf and pelted with rotten vegetables. Either that, or I will order them to dress as Santa and make them do community service.

I also find it offensive that my religious festival is now the Winter Festival of Commodified Greed. But that’s a separate issue. At least they haven’t tried to commodify Easter quite as much. Yet. Hindus and Muslims have no idea how lucky they are in that regard.

My husband’s birthday is in November, and I feel like I totally overspent, so I’m moving over a couple of his gifts to Christmas, so technically I’ve started shopping for him.

For my parents and sister, I bought them each a mug from Etsy. We’re HUGE Lionel Richie fans (we’re going to see him in concert in a week!) and we love tea. I might buy each a bag of their favourite tea to put in the mug.

@arsing89:  I like to buy something each week then it’s not such a big hit on December’s wage packet. Although this Christmas is going to be scaled down because of the wedding in April. I’m going to make sweet treats like truffles, to give as gifts to friends & engagement photos to my g-parents & our parents with beer/wine for Dads.

I can’t WAIT! I love Christmas. I haven’t started shopping yet, though…
