Does Christmas Only Start Your Gift-Buying Season?
It does mine. Bam, Bam, Bam, Christmas, Wife's Birthday and Valentine's Day in 3 months. As "Dad" I used to be responsible for many of the gifts that the kids would get for my wife, so there was always a mad rush of desperate buying. It's slowed somewhat now that the kids do their own shopping, but I can remember the relief once Valentine's was over. For a few years, I had a running tab at Diamonds on The Avenue.
Then we asked about it on the show today, and listener Roxanne does 12 in that same span. 12? I shall complain no more.
