    Are you serious about Christmas shopping etc? The trouble I have is I can't do Christmas until Thomas has had his Birthday or it just wouldn't be right but the real excuse is I'm just never organised for Christmas which is weird because I am in every other area of life! xx

    Can't wait to see Dexter pics!! x

    I do love Christmas, just not all the faff leading up to it. :rolleyes: It's a nice winter holiday.

    Amazon Prime next day delivery was invented so it is not necessary to think about Christmas until the 21st December. And if you never send Christmas cards, people stop expecting to get them and stop sending you any (I have been known to open Christmas cards in February and then only to rip my address off before putting them in the recycling). :D

    In my defence ....living in Doobs brings everything forward as a lot of people travel to be with their families over the holiday....hence I'm going to my first Christmas Party on Thursday so I have to have my resents bought and wrapped to give out......I've got to say thought I would probably still be a Premature Christmas Pain regardless ! On line shopping has revolutionised the whole process though....if I lived in the uk I'd do it all on line.....

    I've done all my shopping, wrapping etc but that's only because I only buy for family and I had to leave it all in the UK. We're very "bah humbug" and don't decorate or buy each other gifts. It's just too much hassle. I always cook Christmas dinner for about 25-30 people at a friend's chalet because everyone else is out working (ski school) and so we're not home on Christmas Day anyway, so it seems pointless decorating the house.

    It makes me feel cross just thinking about Christmas. All that money spent on crap no-one actually wants. I keep suggesting that we (the family) forgo gifts and just spend the money on ourselves, getting things we will actually find useful, but no-one else agree with me. Bah, humbug!
