My family keeps it simple during the holidays. Half of us send out a list of things we would like, and the other half just wants a new pair of what they received the year before. There is no Black Friday midnight madness or Christmas Eve last minute shopping for us. Over the years we’ve spent all the time we saved by planning ahead,
watching back to back episodes of Battlestar Galactica, Lost, Law and Order SVU, The Good Wife, Luther etc. discussing ways we could improve the environment, reduce the national debt and global warming.
I am part of the list making half of the family(big surprise I know ), and I try to get my list out before the end of November. My holiday lists can generally be broken down into the following categories: fitness, things that smell nice, useful things that look pretty and books.
How do your families handle the holiday gift exchange? Any list makers? What’s on your list for this year?
