We spent around $400 for Christmas on gifts. I think I could have managed to spend about $100 less and cut back on a few people, but it's all fine in the spirit of Christmas. What I would really enjoy for Christmas is I think not having to travel, and just staying in surrounded by friends and families by the fire place, talking, reading, listening to music or watching good movies on the tele and drinking good wine. I really do not care for all the hustle and bustle and people rushing through. For the next Christmas, we plan to make it much low key and spend a lot less. We might go back to catching good movies in the theater or on dvds and getting Chinese take outs. Chinese take outs are so much better on cold winter days, don't you think?
