I feel like i'm turning into a right scrooge, i cant being arsed with christmas coming up :roll: it's as if it comes at the worst time of year for me......i earn the least amount of money at this time of year as my overtime gets cut from loads to doing standard hours due to work slowing down and find it harder getting work for myself. I suppose we should put money by when i'm earning more but being married a year and in our own first home with lots of things the mrs wants doing it doesnt always go that way! feckin xmas, nothing but a worry :roll: :!:

Bit the same myself....dunno why peeps go crazy for Christmas. We'll spend a bit on the kids and make sure they have a great time...but won't spend much (if any) on each other.
Certainly won't go crazy buying a whole heap of food....just normal stuff, maybe a couple of 'treats'....but certainly not crisps/nuts/dates/more nuts/chocolate/cake/pudding/huge meal bla bla bla.
But I had better get a selection box! :lol:

The mrs is giving me the evils as we speak :twisted: :lol: i hear ya perry, its just the done thing if you know what i mean. Perhaps enjoying it for what it is is more important, and no kids yet mean we don't have to go over the top. Dont get me wrong i do enjoy christmas and always have done its just too much of a spending frenzy and i am a jock you know :wink:

Christmas is overrated in my mind.

Sure, we make sure the kids have a great time, they deserve it as they are what make Christmas, but the wife and I have now decided to limit our spends on each other.

But, I bet we'll end up spending too much (again) on food and beer :roll:

yeah i know what you mean , the theory behind christmas is a sound idea

you know , the big living room , incredibly hot , around a tree , autumn colours

but its just , spend spend , buy buy , spend :evil:

its taken me 15 years to get to the point of not giving cards , and ive managed to get the receiving down to just mumsy . whenever i meet someone new i have to go over the whole i dont buy for you and you dont buy for me :lol:
