Can anyone really skip Christmas?

Hello everyone, Scrooge here. Not really, I am the first one to say that I LOVE the holidays. I love the music, I love the lights, I love spending time with family & friends. This year, however, I am just not feeling it. Since this year has literally flown by, it feels like I just took down my decorations from last year.

My girls are adults, so Santa is just a memory. Plus on top of that, they really do not need anything. Neither do I. Plus my nephews do not want for anything as well. So this year, I have decided to skip Christmas. My decorations will not be going up. I will not be buying gifts. I will not be hosting parties. I might be baking though, because after all, I LOVE sweets!

So although I always give a little extra to charity during the holidays. This year we will give some more to a cause that we really support. I will ask our friends & family to do so as well, in lieu of gifts for any of us.

If you have been around here for a while, you know that I am a huge supporter of Childhood Cancer Awareness. I give monthly to St. Jude's and to CureSearch. So obviously they are the ones receiving our Christmas gifts as well. I have also purchased a few gifts for Toys for Tots.

If anyone is upset about this, I'm sorry you feel that way.  But I am not sorry about my choice.  No one can tell me how to spend my money.

So if you have a little something to give, please consider these organizations. They can make a world of difference in a child's life. Thanks!

Don't apologize for skipping Christmas Lissete. You have no idea how many times in the past 30 days I have wished the same, but with the Demon Squad still small (11 and 7) that doesn't seem to be a viable option yet. The charities you have chosen to donate to are wonderful and I'm sure they appreciate it! Merry Christmas!
