Yesterday my youngest and I dragged out the Halloween/Fall decorations and decorated the house. Today is October 2nd. I have to remind myself of that because on one of my social networking sites a friend was talking about Christmas shopping.

She said she usually has a closet full of Christmas presents by now and hasn’t even started shopping this year. She was heading out specifically to Christmas shop!

This is foreign to me.

I start my Christmas lists in August and add to it as I surreptitiously listen to my children. But to shop? I don’t think so.

Usually my husband and I will take my list and knock it out in a few evenings of shopping in mid-December.

So what about you? Do you Christmas shop early or do you wait until the last minute like me?
