I am not buying Christmas gifts this year. I haven't even sent out my cards. I have them but they are still sitting on my kitchen table. They are even addressed.
I am not sure what my resistance is. It isn't the crowds. It isn't the weather. I am not clinically depressed. I am just over the shopping, I think. I love Christmas. I love watching my son open gifts (and I am letting Santa bring them this year). I love being at his school parties. I like giving my friends fresh baked cookies. I just don't want to buy any gifts. Not even for myself.
Maybe when I wake up in the morning I will feel differently. Maybe not. Either way, ho ho ho and happy new year.
