I would like to officially protest those of you who already have their holiday shopping done. I congratulate you on your organization and efficiency. Twice this week I ran into people who were all done shopping and could "enjoy the holidays".  This is simply not the true Christmas spirit in my mind. I'm not in the groove unless there are ridiculous crowds in the stores, I can't find anything I'm looking for and you can count the days until Christmas on one hand. Call me a old fashioned, but that's my way of celebrating the holidays. And on December 26th I will do what I do every year, swear I will get everything started and finished before Thanksgiving next year.  PS, here's a handy "Countdown to Christmas" site, enjoy!
