Do we all shop online? I do, apart from stocking fillers which I really enjoy buying. Father Christmas is still part of the magic of Christmas for our four children.
Talea51, dh and I used to have a day out Christmas shopping and come back exhausted and frustrated, having spent a fortune but usually not managed to get what we wanted. We don't even want to do that any more. A wander round a Christmas market is more fun, knowing we can buy everything online.
Southbucks (you make me feel I should be called "eastwarks" which sounds like walking east), there are six of us, our family only, on Christmas Day, which is fine. I have five siblings, four in England, one single, three with babies. Much as I love babies, I am quite glad we don't see them on Christmas Day when everyone is tired. We tend to meet at my parents' for one day and that's it. Dh has one sister.
The worst part for us is dh only gets Christmas Day and Boxing Day off, that feels bleak when it seems everyone else's husband is off for a week or so.
There are too many Christmas adverts on now. Ds2, aged 7, wants to get a Christmas tree now. He says all his friends have one. Hmmm.
