I hate Christmas shopping, mostly because I'm lukewarm about Christmas in general (5 years of working in retail will do that to a person).
But I've gotten a lot better about "getting in the spirit of the season" in recent years, and almost embrace it. Going into today, I had two-thirds of my Christmas shopping done, and I hit the Wal-Mart earlier today to bump that number up a great deal to about 85 percent. Only one left is mom, who I have the worst time with, but I think I have it down for her as well. Only problem is I can't get her gift until I get to my hometown tomorrow and get her gift certificate from the local garden store. I just hope they're open. Fortunately, the people who run it are good friends and will help me out even if they're not open.
This is a record for me to be this "done" with Christmas shopping five days before the actual day. I kind of impressed myself with this one. The timing worked great and everything.
Where you at with your shopping?
