Now that Thanksgiving has passed there is no time at all to relax. From here now until Christmas it's usually crazy for everyone with getting your house decorated, getting all your shopping done, and let's not forget those last minute parties and Christmas gifts. I have always liked getting together with family, friends and colleagues for the holidays. It helps me get in the spirit of it all. Are you looking forward to another Christmas, and are you ready for it? I know my answer and it's HECK NO!! I know some people go out and shop right after the holiday, and look for bargains for the next year. I have been know to do this a time or two before. I also know people that have every single gift wrapped up like two months before Christmas. These people drive me batty. I can't even get my gifts wrapped two weeks before forget two months
So what do you like to do for the holidays, or what do you normally do with your family? I usually just celebrate with the family on the big day, and I try to go to church on Christmas Eve. This has been a family tradition for many many years in our household, and I always look forward to seeing other people out, and the best part I love is when the whole church sings Christmas songs. Now that really gets me in the Christmas spirit. By the time you get home from church if you go to midnight mass, your Christmas is just about here in hours. I'm always doing the last minute thinking like what if forgot something for someone?If I did, I sure hope he or she likes candles because that is what they are getting!! By this time, I'm all shopped out and ready to just hang it all up. Sorry to sound like a scrooge, but Christmas can be very trying on your nerves. So can dealing with the bank, cable and phone people right, and let us not forget the lovely credit cards??
So since it's stressful during this year, I decided to give you the chance to win a $10 Starbucks Gift Card. I don't know about you, but when I'm stressed a bit, there is nothing more than a good old cup of Joe to help out. Actually, a nice old Frappuccino does wonders for me.
