When do you start worrying about Christmas?

It's not even September and I am already really stressing about Christmas. I am already making all my list and checking for deals online. Anyone else that starts stressing out waaaay to early?

  • Yes, I'm stressed about Christmas already too... my kids are at the magic age so I REALLY want them to have a great Christmas, but money is soooo tight. I think I'm going to cut all adults from my list and only buy for the little ones this year...its just too much.

  • I usually start stressing about it a little before Halloween. I don't see any point in stressing about it now. If you plan on giving a lot of gifts or entertaining a lot of people in your home, then the earlier the planning, the better.

  • My husband and I have decided to just do a "family gift" and not buy anything for eachother and focus on her. It's all about her anywayas long as there are lots of gifts under the tree I'm happy.

  • I'm stressed about it already. I buy for my kids and then worry about the adults. I can't imagine and adult who would think they need to get things before children.
