Five days until Christmas or six depending on your counting method. The mall has been overcrowded. My feet are tired from the long hours spent trolling the stores for deals. Come to think of it my wallet is too.
Christmas is a crazy time of year. We buy all kind of things that people may never use but repeat the madness year after year.
I don't know when the people in my family chose to go back to giving presents. I mean we always gave to our kids but buying for each other had been scaled back to one cheap present. Yet here we are again. I find that it's too much work. Don't get me wrong because I had fun shopping and gift giving is a wonderful tradition but it puts too much pressure on us to find gifts.
I don't know if I'm in the minority, in the family, in feeling this way because I've never asked. Something that I need to think about doing.
Anyways come Saturday, which is Christmas day it won't make a bit of difference and then Sunday it'll be all over until the next year.
