Don't get me wrong I do love the holiday season. I like the hustle and bustle. I like the holiday cartoons .
I love watching these holiday movies with the kids. I need to start thinking about Christmas lists.
I am already asking myself what kind of budget am I going to have? How much do I allow for my wife? How much do I allow for my kids? What about my parents, nieces and nephews? What we do in my extended family (brothers and sisters) is draw names. Its is a lot easier on the wallet. I only have to buy for one family member.
We also have my wife's extended family. They also draw names for Christmas presents. I think you have to in today's economic environment. Did I mention the Holiday parties? I need to get past Halloween first.
