I do love Christmas though. It almost has me checking into the psych ward each year but I do love playing Santa. On the other hand, the empty bank account and having to wrestle the crowds at the shops I could happily do without. It is, however, worth it to wake up on Christmas morning to two very excited, and spoilt, kidlets.
I'm still on my mission to win more prizes that I can gift to charities as I have two other donations to make before Christmas - one for Miss P's school, for their Christmas raffle and one for the Salvation Army.
Do you put extra time and effort into your comping in the lead up to Christmas? Do you gift prizes? Donate some? Keep a couple for yourself so you have something to unwrap on Christmas day? All of the above?
