    Hi Xavier,
    Thanks for the comment, it's gas about the Greeks isn't it!

    Hi His_Azalea_Path,
    How sweet, I Love the idea of asking for time with people rather than loads of stuff.

    Best

  2. This is so true. I refuse to buy anything Christmasy until the week before Christmas & put my tree up on the 23rd. I will leave it up until Jan 3. This is the true Christmas season. The only presents I asked for was to spend time with everyone.

  3. A great article and yes, I agree with most of what you say. There is definitely an insanity about it. There are people who actually spend the whole year preparing for that one day! Christmas is big business and we all buy into it the way we do with most things that everyone else does. Nobody wants to feel left out even if it means choosing insanity! πŸ™‚ Thank you Michelle and a very happy new year to you and yours.

  4. Ouch! Turning into America? Hell, we aren't all mega-fat, ΓΌber consumers without moral values or traditions. I see your point that Christmas has turned into a game of convincing people to buy buy buy, but I doubt that is limited to Americans, and I doubt that's as horrible as it sounds. Christmas is about being with your friends and family, giving them a special gift they wouldn't necessarily buy themselves, laughing and smiling. The pre-Christmas stress is a bit ridiculous, but once that big day arrives its all worth it. I am over the cards though…I only send them to my family I don't see, because it's more personal than receiving an e card. Sorry you are so frustrated with what's supposed to be a happy holiday.
