We take a vacation at Christmas time so we can escape all the nuttiness and commercialism.

I start my Xmas shopping about now because of our limited budget. I don't get stuck with a huge bill and I can spend more time on buying thoughtful gifts for everyone. It's nice to have a lot of it out of the way when the craziness of the Season sets in.

But I don't decorate until after Thanksgiving!

I don't decorate at all, I only give things to my immediate family, and last year I decided to start giving them home made things.

Some of my favorite gifts have been homemade! I love gifts that are personal.

Agree! It shows that somebody really cared and put a lot of thought and effort into it, and in turn it makes me feel honored and privileged to receive such a gift.
