Want to know how to Calm your Crazy Christmas Shoppers and make them HAPPY?
Upon arriving back from a walk yesterday, my neighbour approached for a chat and asked if I’d finished my Christmas shopping yet. “To be honest, I haven’t even started” I said. He smiled and proudly replied that they were done. I don’t mind admitting I was more than just a little envious. Don’t get me wrong, I love Christmas... just not Christmas shopping.
I’m often amused by the romantic notion that Christmas shopping is meant to be a joyous occasion filled with the spirit of Christmas and something to look forward to each year.
