I officially started my Christmas shopping today. November 27th. I am completely horrified.
To be fair, they’re technically gifts my mother is giving. We picked up two super cool gifts for my sister and I (can’t say what they are in case my sister is reading) and I tracked down my Nintendo 3DS in pink. I managed to find it for under $190 in Australia, which is like a magic trick. I can’t wait.
And to top off the early-Christmas spirit around here, the Church next door had their Carols By Candlelight. We weren’t around for last year’s, but we heard they had some major preaching, which made many attendees (along with the minister) very unhappy, and they weren’t present this year. It was all about the kids – they even sang Miley Cyrus’ The Climb, which was fun.
It feels much closer to Christmas than it should, or it is.
