Holiday time!

So, our Thanksgiving is over (USA) and now Christmas is upon us. I'm looking forward to it this year. I think I've done well for my income in having gifts for everyone important to me. I take pride in getting good deals and trying to match gifts to the person. I'm also proud that my shopping was done BEFORE Black Friday (the day of the year when retail stores sell enough to not be in debt). Anything I pick up now will just be a bonus to what I already have. I need stocking stuffers for my daughter. I'm too far from my grandkids to send any to them at this point. I know we don't all have the same holidays because of different religious and cultural beliefs, so I'll ask you if you could tell me some of your holiday celebrations that take place around this time of year (November through January).

"Thanksgiving is over" It's supposed to be, but my sister made this HUGE turkey and froze the leftovers, so Christmas dinner will be a continuation of Thanksgiving in the form of turkey and noodles.

Every day is Thanksgiving depending on your perspective. We always had turkey for Thanksgiving AND Christmas. My dad always said he was glad he only had turkey twice a year. Yet, he could eat turkey legs almost any time! LOL

My Christmas shopping is done. I took advantage of cyber Monday sales on Amazon. All I need to do is wrap them.

All of my gifts got shipped last Friday and were delivered on Sunday and Monday. Only one was wrapped. I'll let my daughter-in-law wrap the ones I sent to them. The others are here waiting for Christmas to be opened. My daughter gave me a gift already, so I gave her one of hers already, but the rest are wrapped and waiting.

It's a relief, isn't it, knowing you don't have to mess with the crowds? Although I know some who can't wait to get into brawls over merchandise. It never made sense to me at all - not since I first witnessed it with the Cabbage Patch kids craze.

We have no celebrations for November and January. What I remember is November the first is my elder daughter's birthday.

That's not a bad thing to have happen. My birthday is also in November as is my stepdaughter's.
