OK, OK. I caved.
I’m Christmas shopping this year.
We took a two year hiatus and as silly as it sounds, one of my favorite parts of Christmas is time spent wandering around the outdoor mall on a Saturday night looking for a sweater or a warm pair of socks for my husband. I love the smell of the giant decorated trees. I love the carolers singing in their early 1900’s garb. I love it all.
We aren’t going overboard. We aren’t buying gifts for his second cousin twice removed or my great aunt on my dad’s cousin’s side. But there will be a gift under the tree with a fat name tag that says ‘CHRIS’.
Dave Ramsey will simply have to forgive me.
Are you celebrating this year? Or am I by myself on this?
