  • Stopped exchanging gifts with the entire family, only buy for my spouse and children.

    Shop early; shop online.

    Do all my decorating on Black Friday; no way in hell I'd be out and about with the lunatics out there. I'm sorry but there was a woman on the news yesterday who was thrilled that she found gumballs for $6 --- I mean, REALLY!!!!

    Don't buy into the hype and commercialism of the season; get back to the true meaning of the holiday.
