I actually like to start shopping in July. That's my ideal. I want to be mostly done by the Christmas season so I can actually enjoy Christmas season. I like to do a lot of mail order too. Things haven't worked out this year. My family has officially canceled Christmas and since we have no money, I can't really see an Christmas shopping this year. Sadly, not really in the spirit of things anyway.
Have Yourself a Merry Little Christm'oz
