star always looking

for the perfect gift for each person on my list. I also enjoy the movies and listening to the music when baking.
I will have to be a lot more organized this year as I am going to school (upgrading math and english) as are my 2 girls (in college).

I definitely shop in the summer. I can find some fantastic deals through the year that really saves on my Christmas budget in December!! I will also pop in the occasional Christmas movie or listen to come Christmas music through the year as well. Sometimes, you just need a little Christmas, even if it is 95 in the shade!

I plan. I search for terrific gift bargains. I try to organize the rest of life, to free up more time when the rest of the world joins us in celebrating. I am going to start working on the calendar. There is one terrific Christmas event in November - I want to get it on my calendar. That makes me think about how the days will go in November and December.

I do everything, but mainly PLAN! I plan all the little events I have planned for the kids. I usually make their countdown to christmas things in the summer, while they are out playing and im in the house with the AC cranked lol

I am ashamed to say that I don't really do anything. I watch Christmas in July on QVC and visit the boards...but that's it. I feel bad!

I mostly plan, but I also do a little of all of the above! Except lights...I hate dealing with them, so I don't usually mess with them in the summer, unless I decide I want to drag out a string each of red, white and blue for the patriotic holidays. Then I mess with them! I love the planning, though. I've mentioned before on MHH that sitting on the back porch watching the kids swim with my stack of Gooseberry Patch Christmas books and my laptop is one of my favorite things to do!!

ReineV -- why should you feel bad about not doing anything in the summer for Christmas? (Aside from that huge, free-floating cloud of guilt that smothers all of us!) You know that 99.999% of the world does not do anything for Christmas during the summer. If we watch movies or THINK about Christmas, or read the boards -- then we are SUPER-CHAMPS!

That said, I am going to TRY to accomplish something for Christmas this Memorial Day Weekend! But if I don't accomplish anything..... I am going to TRY really hard to not beat myself up!
