There were a few years where dad actually did do Christmas shopping, but now he does something far more practical and writes us cheques. The rest of us, being women I suppose, do actually Christmas shop. Generally I think we try to do some of our shopping throughout the year, with the majority done in early December. It seems there’s always one last minute forgotten item however that means at least one trip back to the malls the week before Christmas.
One year I actually went out for one of those Boxing Day shopping deals, standing in line for more than two hours in attempt to get a cheap tv. When I finally got in the store of course they were sold out. I don’t think I’ll be trying that again soon.
