Now that it's November, I am legally allowed to talk about Christmas. Not toooo much, of course, or the "wait until December police" will arrest me. But it's now legal for me to mention it, at least.
I've been doing a little Christmas shopping here and there since July. As we all know, one of the most stressful parts of Christmas is the shopping. Whether it's finding the right gift for that impossible to shop for person*, or the financial strain that comes with buying lots of gifts, it's hard on most everyone!
I have been taking stock of what I've bought so far and what I still need to buy. Having done so much shopping before, I'm feeling fairly relaxed about it. But there's one person I'm wondering if I should shop for: me.
In the past, I've occasionally bought myself a little something for Christmas. Nothing overly expensive, just something I know I'll like: a book, an article of clothing, a DVD, a baking utensil, or something in a similar price range. I don't wrap it or anything, I just buy it and enjoy it. But between me and myself, I know it's a Christmas gift and not just another purchase.
Do any of you buy yourself a little something (or big something) for Christmas, or am I alone in this?
*I'm talking about dads, of course. Or men in general. What do men want for Christmas? I have no idea. It's one of life's great mysteries.
