Christmas Blog #1.

I know it's early to be thinking about Christmas, but as my mom astutely pointed out last week, Christmas is only 6 weeks away. For people that have to ship gifts to faraway places this means that it is time to a) find out what the heck people desire/need/want/must have, b) go purchase the selected items, and c) wrap/pack/ship to the correct destinations. It is also time to start thinking about Christmas cookie exchanges and Christmas cards.
For the record, I'm not into the pc jargon of "holiday greetings" and all that. If you don't celebrate Christmas, I'm not sending you a card of any type in the month of December. It isn't like you send me a "Happy Hanukkah" card, like, ever.

    We just spent 60 bucks to send a parcel to Australia, air mail. I shoulda listened to my hub when he said to get it done even earlier so it could go by slow boat.


  2. $60! Woot! That's a lot. Doesn't have an Auzzie service?

  3. Soli - I totally respect where you are coming from and I agree that Christmas lost the "Christ" (for the majority) a long time ago. Not being a religious person I look at Christmas as a way to celebrate family and friends and spend time with them.

  4. I love Christmas so much.

    Totally a family thing. It's the one time of the year when I really enjoy going to church. I don't go any other time of year.

    I'm yearning for Christmas, as it's been 2 years since I REALLY celebrated it. Christmas in Australia is NOT the same. Good, but not the same.

    I can't wait to get home, prop my feet up on the woodstove and enjoy a cup of tea and a good book while the cat dozes on my lap.
