I say it every year: "Thank you internet!" Now, with Walmart and Target shipping for free, it almost feels wrong not to order online. I agree with new clothing purchases or a new store; you want to see and touch it first, but if it's a typical purchase, you are good. And you can have a glass of wine while shopping. That's such a bonus, right?
If you are one of the few dinosaurs, like me, who still send a Christmas, Hanukkah, or Kwanzaa card, address them in November. Last year, I had picture cards done, so there was less writing for me since the company printed my sentiments. All I had to do was address the envelope while I watched my favorite shows!
We all know the holiday season has exploded with buying too many toys, clothes, and electronic devices, but if you can't enjoy them, is it worth it? When my boys were little, I didn't even open my gifts. I only wanted to watch them open and enjoy what "Santa" or the dog gave them. Even though my sons are adults, that's still my favorite part of the holidays. I sit there and watch them open the gifts and remember that the season is for getting together with people we love and enjoying our moments. That's what we should remember.
Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and Happy Kwanzaa to all of you, and a Happy New Year!
