I know...I get disheartened about all the gifts myself. It's all just too much...

I completely am in agreement with you! can I be honest....there is a HUGE part of me that feels very un-Christian binging on all this Christmas/holiday spending. It just doesn't seem like this is what CHRIST would have wanted us all to do on HIS birthday. Granted, I do buy in a bit and do celebrate and give gifts in this fashion but I strongly dislike that mad dash to aquire all the best and put oneself in debt. That is not CHRISTMAS...and it's refreshing that you feel that way....

It gets on my nerves too. Even though we are going to start limiting presents for ourselves, it seems like the list gets bigger every year. Sigh
