*Raises hand

I just don't feel like it this year. So the only "decorations" we are going to have are the little crafts my kids bring home from school. They'll still get thier presents though.. they'll probably just be sitting on the coffee table this year.

We don't celebrate a traditional Christmas at my house. No tree or decorations. No baking (although, we do go to my mom's for Christmas dinner). We do give our son gifts though.

We did one year because of financial constraints and all of our decorations were in a storage unit across the country.  Our kids were only 1 and 2 months old at the time, so they don't remember that we didn't have decorations that year.  It's hard to get in a festive mood and get motivated to decorate when you're depressed because of money.

Yes I do. My BIL and SIL. I always felt bad for the kids because they'd beg their dad to get them a tree and he wouldn't. Every year the week before xmas I bring them over to my house to bake cookies and other goodies, play christmas music,  the stuff they don't have at home. They're not so young anymore (my niece is 10 and nephew 13) but they still want to come over and celebrate with us.

I'm that person that avoids the Christmas stuff until the very last possible second. I'm kinda ok wiht it now that it is after Thanksgiving. I'm a firm believer in holiday snot starting 3 months before the actual day. For some reason this pregnancy is makign me almost want to decorate the house. Ugggh.. SOOO SOON! At least it is December 1 so it is acceptable. :D Just waiting to get our tree this weekend. Mwahahaha!

no I don't...I am sure there are many that do though..

Who I am as a mom can not be expressed in a paragraph. It is expressed by who my children will become.
