No one in my family shares in my enthusiasm for Christmas - I have to force it on them! hehehe... no really, they used to complain about it, but when it comes time for egg nog, or special baked goodies, or gifts - theyre all for it.

Now we have an unspoken agreement... I ask for no help with decorating and what not, and they just deal with it. I won't let them spoil my good time!

It's kind of like that in my house. At least my one Grandma shares my enthusiasm.

Nope! I do love Christmas shopping but for some reason I always procrastinate. I just don't feel like Christmas shopping when it's 90 degrees outside. When the weather starts to get a little cooler, I start to get in the mood to Christmas shop. Sometime when the Halloween stuff starts coming out in stores. Not long now, really. About 2.5 months we'll start seeing progress towards the Halloween season!

I've actually made quite a dent in my Christmas shopping.

I've gotten gifts for my Dh's nephew, my mother-in-law, my mom, one of my sisters, my sister-in-law, and my Dh's neice. I've still got quite a way to go yet but I feel good having such a good start this year. It eases the last minute crunch on the old checkbook and frees up some additional time in December so that I can enjoy some other holiday activities!

I've collected about 10 presents so far. The back-to-school and Columbus Day sales are the best. I clean up my in-store shopping then and then finish off my list shopping online.
I like having the major gifts taken care of early, so that I can go shopping when the place is a zoo and not feel pressured to the point of getting tired and cranky. Going because you want to and leaving when you want to is the only way to deal with the Christmas crowds!

I started on the 5th of January on a cross-stitch project and finished that in april, a cross-stitched christmas table-cloth for my parents. Then I found the present I bought in february 2006 for my sister and her husband so I think they may get that this christmas. I´m making a gift for my boyfriend, been working on that for months. And I have gifts for my two little nieces and one of my girlfriends.
I think I have to check that Santa´s bag, maybe I will find some more gifts that I have forgotten all about....

I haven't purchase any gift as of yet. My wife is looking at getting started earlier this year. Maybe next month we will start.

I was gonna, really I was. I chipped in with my sister, for what I thought was a Christmas gift, for an elderly relative, but she gave it to him as soon as we got back from the store!

I have bought one thing for each of my 3 kids so far. Nothing too much. I usually don't buy too far ahead because their lists change so much with the Sears Wish book coming out and then all the new stuff that is advertised right up til Dec.24th!!
Haven't bought anything for dh yet and have no idea what to get him.
