My face turns into fifty shades of red candles

As, troubled, I look at the price tag.

When did Christmas get to cost so much?

Shouldn’t the focus be on peace, happiness and such?

This weekend, Trifextra asked us to write about our thoughts on the holiday season.  My thoughts on the subject are plenty, I love the holidays, as I have explained at length in Christmas is Here.  But now, with Christmas being so close, and my wallet having had the worst spasm since I bought my apartment, I am rethinking the whole season.  This post is actually inspired by The Gift of Giving…Not! A poem which I so inconveniently posted yesterday!

    Yes, we should focus on peace and happiness, but this is not so easy.

    That was definitely me this year and last. ): I wouldn’t bother with it at all if not for my much younger siblings and niece and nephew.

    When we were strapped for cash . . . we made gifts from the heart instead of shopping at the mall. Everyone loves cookies, right? 😀

    It has become to much about money. What happened to enjoying the family?
