I took a day off to do Christmas shopping. It helps that we are purchasing mostly gift cards for the very few people we have to buy for. I'm hoping to get a Kitchen Aide mixer. I'm also getting a North Face jacket to replace the one stolen from me at work. Yes, at work. I suspect it was a kid. It really stinks that the jacket needs to be replace since it was a Christmas present from DS#1 from a previous year. Frown

I am really hoping to keep the Christmas tree and decorations up until the week of January 6th. I somehow get tired of the decor and take things down soon after Christmas Day. January 6th has special significance in Latino culture because the Epiphany is holy and special celebration . The older I get the more I feel compelled to honor and celebrate my roots and passed them on to my children.

    I have an aunt that puts her tree up on December 24 and keeps it up until Epiphany. More in line with the theology of Christmas. Enjoy your holiday!

    Did the kid need the jacket more? Maybe that's the way to look at it. Merry Christmas and have fun.

    I'm sorry to hear the present your husband gave you got stolen! That sucks. Hoping that is the last bad christmas thing to happen to you.

    That is too bad about your jacket.

    December 24 to January 6 is exactly what family used to do, too! And I really loved Christmas Eve, as a kid, because that's when the tree went up, and Santa came the VERY NEXT MORNING! Now that we stretch out the season so long, I think the kids' excitement is more stressful.
