    I don't do Christmas - haven't for well over a decade... I really don't need anything, and certainly not any of the complete tat that usually has money wasted on it at this time of year.

    I still do cards, and visit friends and family, but I simply told everybody not to buy anything for me, and not to expect anything from me - the pursuit of consumerism is not a church at which I worship.

    As such I have a very detached view of Christmas sales, outdoor decorations, and shopping frenzies.

    Still buy little things for nieces and nephews.

    Got most of it now. When you're trying to stick to a budget of no more than 20 per person it's hard though.

    Just need a couple of bits and bobs for people as i've only spent a few quid on them.

    I do wanna know if anybody can find me a sudokube online with free delivery, if possible?

    It's on play on the playtrade thing, but i'm none too keen on using that.

    i already bought a DSi which was supposed to be bought during Christmas day. however, i was very tempted to buy it early because of an ongoing promotion on my favorite online shop. more details here. they even included a free game for me, and it's a nice bonus indeed. :)

    The supermarket chain said the grottos were designed to encourage people to start saving for the festive season. Staff dressed as elves have been handing out Christmas savings cards.

    Fucking balmy, loonies ... the lot of them!

    Just let the Christmas season slowly start to appear after the likes of Halloween and Bonfire night.

    This country sometimes...

    It really will be. Pretty much done, assuming Citilink find the Amazon delivery they seem to have lost again.

    Done. Me and Mrs Hermit aren't doing presents for each other this year. The only other people I have to buy for are my parents, and I've ordered them a fruit basket. So I'm sorted.

    Fuck no, I'm a man. I'll go out some time in mid December and have a panic attack on Oxford Street, as is Correct.

    Just love Amazon this time of year (even more than usual). Shall I go out and brave the horrendousness of Oxford Street in the bitter cold, or shall i do all my shopping on work time from my desk? Hmmm. Oh, yes, gift wrap for me please. Ta.
