My new book is set during the holidays, and while it’s still a little early to look forward to the end of December (it’s only early November!) I guess we all know we’ll get there eventually! Are you ready? Are you the sort of person who has your Christmas presents bought and wrapped by the end of October? Or do you wait until Dec. 24 and rush around desperately trying to find a store that’s still open? 😀
I suppose I am sort of a mix between the two! Since I live in Alaska, most of my family is far away and the mail from here to the rest of the U.S., let alone anywhere else, can take forever. So I try to have my gifts mailed out by the first week in December. I always intend to be more organized than I am about it, though — I’ve been trying to get in the habit of buying presents throughout the year, whenever I spot something I know so&so would like, so that they’re all purchased and ready to go by November! That’s the theory, anyway. In actual practice, I usually end up with a ton of things for the easy-to-shop-for relatives, and nothing at all for the hard ones … so I may as well have waited ’til the last minute anyway. XD
What about you?
