You'd better watch out



It's only 166 days until Christmas. Yeah, I know. It's hard to believe, but it's true.

Given how fast this year has gone by, it'll be here before I know it. It's mid-way through July already and all those goals I set back in January with a June 1st deadline are shot to Hades and back.

Meanwhile, you can have a little taste of Christmas ahead of time.

The contest on the Writing Playground website is called "Let's Have Christmas in July (and August)." And you can learn more about how to enter the contest here.

Here's the prize package I've put together for some lucky winner.



This will give you a head start -- given it's already July.

Or are you one of those shoppers who already has your Christmas shopping done?


P.S. Today's a very special day for one of the Playfriends. So here's something very special for her!

Happy Birthday Kira! And may you be blessed with many more.

No Christmas shopping for me yet. I generally wait until the day after Thanksgiving. But I do buy Christmas ornaments prior to that if I see something that I like.

I always start early. Too early, according to my family who have difficulty making their lists in September (they're due Oct. 1st).

I guess I've always been on the Hallmark holiday schedule. Ornaments go out in July, Christmas decorations go out in October. By the time Thanksgiving rolls around, I'm done and I have to be careful not to overshop when the seductive ads start coming out.

Just remember, Mother, that Santa is watching you.

Happy Birthday. No, I'm not an early shopper. I start agonizing once Halloween comes around lol.

Happy Birthday Instigator!

I am definately a last minute shopper. I swoop in and get it done all at once. (Usually a week before Christmas!)

Happy Birthday!
I haven't started my Christmas shopping. Usually I don't really start until Nov. or Dec.

Happy Birthday Instigator!!!! I love to shop and, yes, I have already starting buying Christmas presents. But I know I will be out on Christmas Eve for that one that I forgot.

Thank you for the birthday wishes! I have the most amazing friends. :-) Sorry I didn't post yesterday...I sorta played hooky for most of the day.
