If It's Not A Bahama Mama Then I'm Not Interested

Yes it's that time of the year again ~ It's time to drive you all bonkers with my 'Countdown to Christmas'. I can't believe that it's only 6 months since my last Christmas thread was closed, and once again, the year is flying by ~ so that in only 6 months time it will be Christmas again.

So, has anyone started their Christmas shopping ? worked out what you're getting everyone ? or do your kids already know what they want this year ?

Any ideas what the big 'must haves' are for this year. I'm not sure what my girls will be after this year, probably $$ (as eldest DD is off to WDW in the New Year) and fingers crossed we'll be there just after Christmas

I will refresh this thread each month to drive you all mad and to remind you to start your shopping early ~ even though you'd probably prefer to be shopping for suntan lotion and bikinis

In the next few months if you see any bargains or 3 for 2's etc. then please post them on the Christmas Bargains thread http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2291416

Can I take this opportunity to be the first to wish you all a very ...


Santa Mandy

BTW, here's my ticker for when I can put my Christmas tree up at the end of November

Brilliant!!! I'm already looking forward to the festivities!!!

In fact, I decided today that this year, instead of gifts, we would take all the kids away just after Christmas on a skiing holiday - so I've spent much of the day researching that... I'm just sad I'm going to miss next month's 'Christmas in July' day on QVC...

Oh goodness me! How fast this year is moving along!

Not even thought of Christmas yet, there's plenty more going on in between now and then. I do know it'll be a reasonably quiet one for us all this time around though, we're back at WDW next May - so we've all agreed that we'll go easy on the gifts so we can have more spend for our trip!

I'll check in each month though, I LOVE Christmas, my fave time of year!
