Just don't shop corporate stores. Try and support the local economy. Local mom and pop shops selling domestically made merchandise.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 25761338


great thinking. we make homemade breads, cookies, etc... for the family and friends. Always appreciated.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 27134714



I totally agree. No one does that anymore. I used to think it sucked ass that my grandma gave me hand knitted mittens, scarves and touques every Christmas. Now I would give anything to have them again. Even those brick Christmas cakes ... actually no ... I don't' miss the Christmas cake bricks.

The holiday has nothing to do with Jesus so I don't celebrate it. I give gifts at other times of the year instead.

Look at it this way, prices are going to go up.
If you need something, now is the time to buy.
You make the choice of where you shop, but if you are gonna need it, buy it now.

Why do I want revenge?
And why would I want to punish my wife and kids during the holidays?

My wife and kids are going to have a great Christmas.

 Quoting: Renegade (Me too)


I'm pretty sure buying my kids new coats, shoes, clothes and things that they would need/use any other time of the year is just fine.

Is it ok if we spend money after Christmas or is that evil too?
 Quoting: Debauchery


No one said anything about it being evil. But it does help feed the beast..After Christmas sales are great...
People don't have the money for such things these days, you know the working poor?

During Carter's four horrid years... can you imagine if he had been reelected? Guess we're about to see just how bad it could have been, much like today.. broke..

We got one button down shirt a piece for Christmas and not one of us complained about it, that was it..but then we weren't used to having much during those bad times, we had food, a small home, family and three new shirts. Oh and wonderful Christmas time...

If you wait until after christmas, then you are not spending it on christmas but on good sales. I shop the summer sales when the winter things come out and in January the summer clothes start coming out and that is the time to buy winter clothes for deep discounts.

Re: The best REVENGE is NOT buying for CHRISTMAS!!!
I think if you want to buy something - buy those gifts. Just don't go over-board. If you want to make hand-made gifts - that's great too. As a former small business owner, I so appreciated people coming into my shop to buy local. Because of this, I was able to do the same for them. It's what makes the world go 'round. The main thing is don't forget what Christmas means.

Every family is different - if some choose not to exchange gifts - nothing wrong with that. As long as your motive is about less materialism and not about punishing.

I am a knitter and am pretty good at it if I do say so myself. Loved ones are getting beautiful wool hats and lacy fingerless mitts, lace scarves and felted slippers. They might get a few other things as well, but I get the most thrill out of making them something exactly suited to them with my own hands.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1550123


I buy a few things in the summer to stash away for the holidays.

I make a lot of my gifts. I have a candle shop and everyone loves candles so that's what I give. I like to bake too. Who doesn't like food? I make cookies and special cakes and gift those. Majority of what I purchase is clothes or books. Useful things..at least in my opinion. We don't go crazy in my household.
And the LORD spake, saying, "First shalt thou take out the Holy Pin, then shalt thou count to three, no more, no less. Three shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the third number, be reached, then lobbest thou thy Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch towards thy foe, who being naughty in My sight, shall snuff it." Amen.

Black Friday.

That will be the last time I shop. The wife and I decided that the commercialism of the holiday season is out of hand when they start before Thankgiving with Christmas items....

American made or nothing this year, that's my resolve.

If you have money to spend and WANT to spend it and it makes you feel good do it. Maybe there's something you want, or somone you want to buy for. It's true, Christmas is a big buy spree come on, but that's no reason to just close the spigot, you can't take it with you. It never was just the money, it was what the money was for.

Believe you're referring to Queen Victoria.. and as usual most you people don't know much of nothing.. She married a German prince, and it was custom for them (Germany 100's of year prier) to give gifts at Christmas.. Just caught on when she married him and incorporated it into English customs.. Same for the Christmas tree <<< Cause pretty sure you don't know that either..
