Is there one month or two out of the year that's the most busiest for you?

December 9, 2009 That would be May and December for us. In May its my wife's birthday, nurses week and usually the end of school. In December its my daughters birthday, our anniversary and Christmas. At least we get a six month break in between each. What's your busiest month of the year.

Hello my friend gitfiddleplayer Ji, In fact, if you ask me, our 16th year running after my hubby's retirement in 1993, but we never found ourselves free, mostly during period of children's education we were very busy in July due to admission/clothing/fees etc. It went upto 1998, when our daughter completed her studies. Then came our biggest job for their settleing with their spouses. This is our job as a parents. It was completed in 2002, when my daughter got married. Then, we went to US for first delevery of my younger DIL. Thereafter, we spend time half at our home and rest with our children. But mostly, October month is very busy as two Birthdays fall (my daughter and my grand daughter), in addition to these Dewali celebration mark very busy for us. Wishing you a very happy Chrismas and New Year-2010. May God bless You and have a great time.

I am sure that everyone has times of the year that are busiest for them and I know one of the busiest months around here is December because it is Christmas,my parents anniversary,and several birthdays,and another month that is normally busy is November because of Thanksgiving and all the decorations we put up,and other than that the rest of the months are about the same since most of the months have at least one birthday,even though a couple have two or three birthdays in them like February which has mine and my brothers birthday,and July which has my wife,and several other birthdays in it.

Lol yeah even though my mother said next December we are taking a trip somewhere so she will not have to deal with the bickering non cooperative family when it comes to Christmas and that includes her side and my fathers side because every year it is a hassle getting them all together.

Right now, the way my life is going, I would say every month, it is just on a crescendo. Work related, December is hectic with celebrations. Family wise, November because of four birthdays plus Thanksgiving.

Well, the holidays are a very busy time of year for me, like most people. Plus, my birthday falls on New Year's Eve. Other than that, I guess it is the whole summer. It seems like some one always has something going on. Friends of mine play in a band, and they are always booked more in the summer. We try to visit another friend who has a pool about every 2 or 3 weeks as well. There is a big group of us that gets together. Then there's my nephew who plays baseball, and of course, I try to get over and cookout with my sister and brother once in a while during the summer. Summer is definitely a busy time of year for us!

Hi, gitfiddleplayer. My busiest moments in the year would be Christmas and May. Why because of Christmas and graduation time for my son in school. I have a lot of planning to do during this time. My schedule id full. My son's birthday is also in December too. Feburary is another busy month for me too. I have to get my Valentine's gift ready for for my son's class. This takes a lot of planning and organizing!

I'd say the busiest months of the year for my family is July, August and December, we have several birthdays in those months, and it seems like we're always going to somebody's birthday dinner or party, there's always something to do.

Mine would be August through October. August would be Intramurals and other school activities. September would have that week-long fiesta in celebration of our locality's devotion to Mary. That would mean more take home projects, papers, and exams possibly. October would be that out of town trade fair that is a part of our grade requirement. That one is a bit of a hassle because it lasts for a week. That includes dodging traffic, setting up the booth and display, trying to market the products for sale, inventory check, storing the products at the end of the day, get to the hotel, meeting and evaluation for the day. Then do it all over again for the whole week. Whew! When we get back from that we have to face the Final Exams. Then after that would be submission of all pending requirements trying to finish it before the grades are submitted by the teachers to the registrar so that we will not incur an incomplete. Those months are the very full months for me. I was almost up to the breaking point to that this year. Good thing I got through to it alive.

Well, December is the busiest month of the year for us. Visiting friends and in laws for the Holiday and that's the only month we can travel quite far. Of course buying and wrapping gifts, well.... not for us but for the church project and that is to take some stuff to social services and to the homeless, in fact this coming Monday we will do the packing. Last week we had the collecting and the net will be distributing. December is the busiest indeed.

I have a busiest time of year and not so much a month. My busiest time is between October and March. These are the times I work 6 and 7 days a week, have all the birthdays in my family and not to mention the holidays. I am hopping..lol.

November, and December, definitely, with January and February following closely, and a couple of things in August and September, but definitely November and December, because of all of the November and December birthdays, and wedding anniversies we have, along with Christmas.

Tax time, of course. It is also the time of year I like least because of the cold and rain and wind. It is the worst time of the year to have to work on filing taxes. Not good for paying them either.

By far December is the busiest month for me at least. Mostly because of Christmas and because I usually get more business in December. I don't think it matters for my husband because other than putting lights up on the house and buying me Christmas presents he does not do any of the Christmas work. While I have to do all the shopping and wrapping, while my orders are increased, plus all the baking, and Christmas cards and mailing packages and attending the kids Christmas activities, and I am also room mom for youngest son for his holiday party. This year to make matters worse my middle child is having eye surgery on Monday and I have had to drive him back and fourth for all these pre-surgical appointments and seeing specialists and stuff. So I have even less time to take care of all the Christmas stuff and it is going to be difficult to find time to wrap all the presents when the kids won't catch me. Next week is going to be crazy. My son's surgery is Monday, he has to be brought to the doctor on Tuesday for a post surgical exam and the doctor wll be in her other office that day which is over an hour away. Wednesday is my only free day, Thursday I am teaching a cooking class, and Friday I have to do my son's holiday party. Wednesday will probably have to be spent getting the last minute Christmas gifts for my kids because they will be with me at home for Christmas break so I won't be able to do it after next week. I am really not looking forward to next week, and between all that I will have to take care of customer orders.

For us it is probably October (my daughter's and my grandson's birthday and their favorite holiday- Halloween!) and December which is my granddaughter's birthday and Christmas. My granddaughters birthday this year will be her eighteenth. Ugh! It should be a hoot. And afew tears as well I am thinking.
