Hi Luanne,
I always complete all christmas on the friday after thanksgiving. I hate to shop I make the list for people I need gifts for and then I go though the ads to pick out the gifts. On that friday I go from store to store until all gifts are bought. I always do the toy store first

I started out this year at 4AM with coffee and my waffle sandwich (two chocolate chip eggos with peanut butter in the middle). I finshed shopping at 1:30PM. I mailed that christmas cards on Saturday. Once I wrap the gifts and put up the tree I can relax and enjoy the season.

Shopping this way also keeps me on budget because of the careful planning before shopping. The fun part about shopping day after thanksgiving is the interesting people you meet in line for 2 hours. One couple is taking an Panama cruise on Infinity I just took an Alaskan cruise on the ship so we had lots to talk about.
One part age; three parts liquor!
