I see everyone in the mall going bonkers over the Halloween stuff. They are going to have a ball going trick or treating too. I am already hearing family plans to have thanksgiving dinner too. I am not interested in any of those two. I am going straight to Christmas. I am getting all my ducks in a row and making it happen. I was going to get my daughter a $100 bill in a card. Not any more because,I am going to see about a 45 inch tv and the play station 4. She wants the 3 but,I am going to get her the latest one. I put a pair of boots on hold at Marshall's today for my sister. She walks to work and those boots are warm. You know bear paws right. They are just like UUgs but warmer. I am cutting my list due to the types of gifts I give. I am not a cheapy when it comes to gifts. But,after all that work i put in last year and the years before. I am sure glad I am cutting my list way down. Are you thinking about Christmas or something else...

I am thinking about plumbers and electricians and cutting a hole in the wall to join my two parts of the house. I will have company here between Thanksgiving and Christmas.

I hope to have some guests over as well. Not sure who right now though. Good luck with the other stuff.

That will be quite expensive depending on the location. Nice to have company over the Holidays.

Christmas, even though Halloween is more popular over here I still see it as more for kids, and we don't have Halloween, so I've got 2 birthdays in November (gifts already brought) then Christmas

I can't walk good in my BearPaws, not comfortable after I brought them. I do have Uggs, love them. I haven't done much Christmas shopping, I have other expenses right now, so hoping to do some soon. Are you sure you want to skip Thanksgiving?

I am not a big fan of all that food being cooked here. I might go to my sister's for a plate and back to my mans for the day.

@sharon6345 , It can be a lot of work, I do understand, our family is not so big any more, so it is a nice day , but a lot of work for so few people

@CookieMonster46 On Thanksgiving it will be just 4 of us and we will have a turkey, potatoes, yeggies, gravy and cranberries with a couple of pies nothing other than that.

I love the bear paw boots. They are seriously my favorite boots there are. Loveeee them. But they're pretty awful if it gets wet. You can buy a waterproofing spray in shoe stores. Be sure to get some!

I water proofed mine last week. The ones I wore last season still look brand new too.

@sharon6345 awesome! It's definitely a good idea and it's soooo easy to do! Just be sure to do it outside or you might start feeling funny!

I am thinking about nothing right now, Halloween is not popular here and we do not celebrate Thanksgiving, so I am waiting for Christmas.

Halloween totally different over there to here in the UK, It's most so over there than here. I tried for two days to get a Halloween card, finally this afternoon after going online I got one, I could pick from one of four that all they had. I know what I'll be doing next year lol.

Really only 4 Halloween cards here they are all over the place and thousands of different ones I would think.

I got some stuff for the younger children and I give gift cards to the other family members. Next year I hope we will be living in Oregon so maybe I can skip everyone. Do you think I will get away with that?

Nope no way could you get away with that. I live far away from most of my family so I have to send stuff in the mails.

It seems like something strange to know you don't have that holiday.

@sharon6345 most of the world doesn't. We find it strange that you do.

I too am getting ready for Christmas- the best season for me, specially since I plan a party for poor kids each year.

Every year I try to simplify my Christmas more and more. My tree has gotten smaller and I use fewer decorations.

I don't know how much I will spend on my tree since I am going to toss it out after the holiday season.

We do not really do Halloween as you do in the USA although it is getting more like that. We do not have thanksgiving either so it is Christmas for us here in the UK! We spend on the family and just a few close friends and that is about it.

Lately I have been thinking about Christmas and what I will be buying for the family. Unfortunately yesterday I received a bill in the mail that I owe on a hospital stay over $1500 so i will be thinking about that a lot before deciding anything.
