Default Andy, a quick one

So my friend, now that it is slowing down I was wondering how we compare with Christmas.
It seems that over here we spend the time from the end of November til Christmas running around, putting up lights, buying presents, fighting crowds in malls, having heartattacks looking for sales, burning gas at a very high rate, running debt that would make most nations blush, working ourselves into mental institutions, partying, getting waaayyy to little sleep, all to have the "perfect" day. Christmas day we run to this house and that house eating this, that, and the other thing til we are corpulent little butterballs. We go to sleep after lying about how much fun we had and how much we love our new gifts. The day after the big day we use up what's left of our credit rating buying everything left over that's on sale. It's such fun.
So please tell me how you observe the this Holy season.
Rodney

Dang brother, sounds like your an honourary Englishman.
Your way of doing things in the festive season are EXACTLY like here.

Spend, spend, spend, eat, eat eat. Party, party and more party. We usually have a very noisy day with the grandchildren and their noisy new toys, the usual screaming i want this, i want that, then the main lunch, then the wines or beers, then the pudding, then one of the kids saying i feel sick, then more food for tea, even if its just a few hours after the main meal.
How the women folk keep up the shopping spree's after the big day is amazing. My other half, Kath said to me on Christmas day night.

I'm going to see my mom in the morning, are you joining me, yeah i said, happy to. Then after we had been there a few hours, BANG she hit me with it. Oh the sales have started in the town, i'm thinking of soing to see if i can get a few bargains.

Dang woman ( i said ) dont you ever get sick of fighting off other shoppers for so called bargains, NOOOOOOOOOO she said, its all part and parcel of the excitment of the shopping trip.

I said your a glutton for punishment, and yeah, i went shopping with her, on the understanding that we had a nice Indian meal delivered for our main meal of the day, washed down with a nice bottle of wine, aahhhhh bliss.

Would i change it, not for anything, the look on the kids face, the enjoyment, overeating, and sometimes over drinking, LoL, the love it brings, the family bonding and better still, the sound sleep after the big eventful day. LoL

I get to know what a pack mule feels like, as I am in charge of holding a ton of clothes in my arms ( as some dept stores dont have shopping carts ) as Maria still shops, shops and shops some more.
