Aloha!


Welcome to this week’s edition of Aloha Friday.

In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that they take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response.

If you’d like to participate, just post your own question on your blog. Don’t forget to visit the other participants! It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends!


THIS WEEKS QUESTION:

When do you start Christmas shopping?

This year we started early October but usually not until December. We are getting a jump start this year I guess.

Happy Friday!

Janet said...

Believe it or not, I try and get going quite early in the year. I look for all kinds of bargains to fill stockings with! I hate a last minute rush and because I usually work until midday on Christmas Eve, like to be organised!

KIKI said...

I start planning in November as to what I am going to purchase and then start shopping the day after Thanksgiving to get the best deals.

Jane In The Jungle said...

Hmmmm I usually start in October....except for this year...running behind..oh no!

Mighty M said...

I have already started, so early November for me this year. But often it's mid to late November (but then I always end up feeling too rushed!).

TheAngelForever said...

Since Chanukah is in early December, I have already started to get a few things here and there.

I use to start early when my kids were small.


Have a great Friday!

Smellyann said...

Usually I start November 1 when our Christmas Club account matures, but this year we are not getting any presents. We're hoping to go to Great Wolf Lodge instead.

I almost always start the day after Thanksgiving. I like to hit the big sales, get the bulk of my gifts and be able to rest through the rest of the holidays.

Ave said...

I start in December :D

Whimsical Creations said...

We start the day after Christmas. I have a similar question today. =D

Nancy said...

I used to start somewhere around Dec. 10th but that is always too late. This year I started in September, ha ha!

Kristina P. said...

I actually shop online, and start a couple months before.

~ Noelle said...

lol, already started

Annie said...

I try to do it in August but I end up waiting till November....it really does happen that way every year. if I was smart I'd get them all year long during sales!

Twincerely,Olga said...

in December!!! I know my bad!

Marie said...

I usually try to plan year round as I see sales or specials, so I'm not rushing at the last minute. That was especially important this year since our budget is so much tighter -- I'm already done -- yhea! I also helps that we have a small family to buy for!

Sharon said...

When I was younger I would have it done the day after Thanksgiving.
Now it seems like I get later and later.
have a great day.

Randi Troxell said...

like a week before.. seriously.. and yep! it's just as crazy as you might think!!!

a49erfangirl said...

I actually just started yesterday. Normally I do it the day before Christmas as that is when my husband gets his bonus for Christmas. My parents take the kids and I get them back Christmas Eve.

Kandi Thompson said...

For my girls...I always start early. I will have them done before the end of November. I actually do most of my shopping for them the day after Thanksgiving...I know that is the dreaded day to shop, but with twins I get the BEST deals, it makes it worth all the wait.

Sue said...

Every year is different and the past few years I truly only have to buy for my hubby and a few friends so... I usually start in either late November or December.

Have a great weekend!

Bridgette said...

Usually I start around this time of the year, but because I am unemployed this year, I started earlier. I am DONE Christmas shopping! :)

blueviolet said...

Usually about a month before Thanksgiving. I hope to be done soon!

Upstatemomof3 said...

Usually right around now - but I am now pretty much finished. :)

Megan said...

Ugh!

Not soon enough!! Always rushing to get it all done!

JamericanSpice said...

I don't do Christmas shopping. We don't have the $$ for it.

CanadianMama said...

I usually start on Boxing Day. I buy stuff all year round when it's a good deal; saves so much money that way!!
