      I don't even take down my Halloween decorations until after All Souls Day.  So......., I'll think about Christmas tomorrow.

    Spending a fortune on uninspired presents. Taking part in redundant and manic pseudo, quasi-spiritual get-togethers. Perfecting my plastic Christmas "anything goes" smile. A cackling sing-along that could sink a thousand ships.

    Dealing with the neighbors.

    Expressing adulation and joy at another set of off-color clothing that is a size too small. Being deprived of my Internets. Being a noticeable year older, both physically and cynically. Having to hide my friend Johnny Walker (black -- but occasionally blue). Squander months of careful fitness and risk a diabetic -- type II binge.

    Bah, Humbug.

    Just joking tongue

    ...i dont' want to think about it for a bit longer...have had to think about it through work - planning activities for families...but personally...I try to stay away from all of the fuss until much later...I find it hard because of my work, working with very, very low income folks who really struggle and have the pressures of marketing/commercialism surrounding them with a focus to spend and buy 'stuff'...when they don't have it....don't mean to put a damper on your thread SGFR...but that's what i see and sometimes this time of the year makes me cringe and it shouldn't really, but it does....i can't seem to put on my rose-coloured glasses....i manage to pop them on a few days before xmas...for a couple of days...I need a different job lol....one where it is mandatory to wear rose coloured glasses smile

      that's ok
      personally I get "excited" (cause I love doing it early!!)
      but I'm not "going back there" for awhile

      it can be too much.

    So far for the 2010 Christmas season I have set up the annual shopping day and Kid Cookie Day. Shopping with no kids and no time limits, just shopping and looking, enjoying a nice relaxing lunch and great memories.My Sister-in-law and I escape for a whole day. Kid Cookie Day is a day when all the kids of our family get together and make goodies and treats.  Purchased some baking goods.  We have a young family,  children’s ages range from 2 to 14 and they all love cookies  so we have a baking day making sugar cookies and chocolate covered pretzels. Send the guys out to hunt or watch football . In the evening we all chip in and order pizza and wings Everyone is happy!! It’s a great way to get the season kicked off and an inexpensive way to have a family gathering with no stress of planning who is going to make what.  Each year we try to add some special twist to make the holidays fun with out losing the true meaning. Family!

    I've arrange the family dinner - which is hosted in our home this year. Apart from that, no gifts of whatever yet.

    I've also written hubs on eco-friendly x'mas and on charity x'mas cards and gifts ideas. Ultimately wanna make the x'mas bit more meaningful smile
