the hardest part about Christmas

December 24, 2012 at 8 am. We have a lot of wrapping still to do.

Sometimes, the hardest part about Christmas is knowing when to stop. Though I bought enough presents, I didn’t buy (nearly) everything I wanted to.

I think it’s good to draw a line and stay there. Mine happened five days before Christmas. A dollar amount, a number of packages, perhaps a limit that leaves them wanting. Maybe our children don’t need everything we think they do. Not event those sequined boots on sale.

Do you consciously limit your holiday gift giving? How? Is it hard for you, like it is for me?
