Are you in Christmas denial?

December 15, 2011

This has never happened before. Normally I’m all over Christmas at this time of year – food ordered, gifts bought and wrapped.

But so far, apart from getting the tree, I haven’t done a thing. No cards written and posted, no delivery slot booked, no presents bought.

And I’m looking at my timeline on twitter and it seems I’m not the only one. Loads of you haven’t done a thing about Christmas yet.

Where’s it coming from, this Christmas denial? Are we just all too busy? Is there a sense of ‘meh’? Or are we too worried about finances to go shopping?

I’ve definitely been crazy busy at work, so that’s one excuse. Next week I’ll be shopping like a mad thing. And then no doubt I’ll be cursing the fact that I decided to leave everything until the last minute.

    Popped over from the carnival, hope you’ve caught up a bit and today isn’t too manic for you! Merry Christmas

    I think I peaked about 2 days ago when all the pressies were bought but now seriously doubt I can get going again. Perhaps some mulled wine would help…..

    I can’t really bring myself to care. I’m not a massive fan of shopping and that seems to be 90% of what it’s about these days. I’m not religious so have always tried to focus on the family aspect but I’m sick of every f***er on TV trying to sell me the Christmas dream, from ads to X Factor to Jamie bloody Oliver. And it’s all about buying shit. Bah humbug.

    i was a bit better last year but so far i only have the tree. i have just been too busy with work and I really don’t have a clue what to get as presents. Or for the food. Keep waiting for hubby to rescue this and take over but nothing happened yet!! TBH it just doesnt feel like christmas this year. My hubby and I don’t have any family round us so its just the 3 of us this year due to us both having to work.

    I have never been this un-organised before, just have barely anything done! Getting quite panicky now!
