I keep saying Merry Christmas, meanwhile people all around me (in my workplace, for instance) are saying Happy Holidays. It occurs to me someone may eventually complain to my supervisor. Wouldn't that be exciting. Haha! Oh the controversy!
I dare them. If they do, I'll go all liberal on them and say they're just picking on me cause I'm black. Hehe. Just kidding! I may be childish, but I have my conservative pride.
So! How far along is everyone with their Christmas shopping? I just started a few days ago and all I got so far are stocking-stuffers. I hope to be done by the weekend.
What do YOU want for Christmas? I usually don't ask for anything specific. But this year there is one little thing I truly desire. My family rarely reads the blog anymore, but just in case....
I want a camera please! Nothing fancy. I'm a simple girl. I'd just like to be able to use something other than my cell phone for pics. And our daughter doesn't always remember to bring hers when she visits.
Gifts For Adult Kids
How do families handle gift giving with adult kids these days? Do parents still let their kids give them a wish list? Depending on our available funds, it's varied for us each year. But having fairly young adults, it's still all new to me.
I'd love your opinion whether this applies to you directly or not. We were all kids once ago, right?
As for saying Merry Christmas, does it feel strange when you say it? I live in a very blue state, so yes, there is definite apprehension (hidden of course) when I say it. I'm not gonna say Happy Holidays, so fuhgettaboutit!
I mean if Hanukkah is your thing, just say Happy Hanukkah, right? I'll return that greeting for sure! If you're brave enough to say Happy Kwanzaa (a made up holiday by an angry socialist), I'll even return that greeting too. But I'm not gonna water everything down with Happy Holidays just because the latest social dictate calls for it.
Anywayz, let's talk gift giving and wish-lists!
