Christmas Shopping

Hi everyone!  The video I have chosen for this post is the Christmas Song by Shirley Temple with some rare pics. I found it great, wonderful vintage photos and great childhood memories there.

Christmas shopping is something that I have never enjoyed doing in the month of December....well, definitely not at the last minute!  I find that people can get very aggressive and nasty sometimes, especially in periods of stress, and the last few days before Christmas can sometimes bring out the worst in people when they are shopping.

I am not a fan of shopping, never have been, but purchasing gifts for others whenever I am able to gives me a feeling of joy.  I just try and do it when the stores are not too busy, as it gives me more time to browse and choose the right gift in a more peaceful setting.

How about you?

Thank you all so much for visiting me here!  I really appreciate and enjoy reading your thoughts, which you can always share by clicking on the 'comments' link at the end of my post.


  1. Enjoyed your video, but I really miss Your Photos .

  2. I hardly ever do any Xmas shopping. My dear wife takes care of that. :-) Thank goodness, or it would never get done!

    Bah, humbug! You can call me Scrooge. My grandkids call me Grumpa. I think they're kidding.

  3. I never shop unless I have too. My significant other loves it though. I think in our smalltown its a social event. That is another opportunity to meet and greet friends and neighbors. Why else would it take and hour to pick up a loaf of breat and a quart of milk?

  4. I love shopping, Linda, for the coffee in between... ?!
    @Mis your photo's too...

  5. Not having enough money has always taken the fun out of Christmas shopping for me. I feel bad that my gifts are not as nice as I would like.

  6. I kind of want to see you photos, PLEASE. As for Christmas shopping, I get in a mess, but I'll do it anyway.

  7. I have to admit that I'm not a fan of Christmas shopping either. I do much of my Christmas shopping online these days.

  8. Une jolie publication... Tout comme vous je n'aime pas faire le shopping et encore moins en cette période de fin d'année ! Cependant il va falloir que je m'y mette !

    Gros bisous.
