Merry Christmas In July!
No really, it's apparently a thing. As a matter of fact, 13 percent of us have already started our Christmas shopping. That number sounds way too high for me. I don't know about you, but I'm more of a "wait until the week of" type of girl. Granted that stresses me out too much, but it's just the way I work.
What do you think is better? Starting your Christmas shopping now? Or waiting until closer to time? Of course I would not encourage anyone to wait until the week of (that's just poor planning!). But I feel like Christmas shopping now is just a waste of time. And who knows if the person you are buying for is still going to be interested with what you are buying them now. I understand that you don't want to mess with all the people and some shoppers have to buy a little here and a little there. But is it really necessary to have all of the Christmas stuff set out yet? We haven't even closed out the summer season. It's too hard for me to get in the Christmas spirit when I want to jump into a pool or hit the lake.
I just don't understand it. The holidays always stress me out and I would like to relax and enjoy my summer as much as possible. Sorry Mom, I will not be buying your Christmas present just yet.
13 percent. Really?!
