Bah Humbug

I must confess I prefer Halloween to Christmas.

The best part about Halloween is it's a cheap holiday - typically, there is only snack foods and candy involved.

Christmas is quite another story. Every year I swear I'm not going to drop a cartload of cash, and every year I fail miserably.

So far, I've purchased these for my niece - I've always wanted a set, and so I'm foisting my regret on her. I've also purchased this for my son - the story behind this is he is taking Turkish as a language this year. It will only serve a practical purpose if he decides to work for the FBI.

My favorite gift buying is for our white elephant exchange - I pride myself on finding the most tacky and useless items for less than $5. I plan on ordering some items from the Archie McPhee catalog. Our family likes to fight over items during this exchange.
