Is it already Christmas where you live? It seems December 25 comes earlier and earlier each year. As a Jew, I kind of love it, because hello, cookies, pine tree smell and holiday carols.

She gets all of her holiday shopping done in a few hours the day after Thanksgiving, and she comes out of it with a smile on her face, so more power to her.
