I begin by making lists in August so I can have all of my shopping done before Thanksgiving.
I plan time between Thanksgiving and Christmas to do most of my shopping.
I play it by ear.

Open gifts? Oh no, I prefer to give than receive.
How about now? Does now work for you?

Dude, it’s cake. Eat it!
Slather that thing with latkes, apple sauce and sour cream, and I’m in.
Why can’t we just re-gift it again?
Wait, let me get my tool kit and a gallon of paint! I have an idea...
Peace on earth, goodwill to all.
The season is the reason.
Ugh. I shouldn’t have eaten that last piece of fruitcake...
