I see someone has been watching the advert on TV where it shows a woman doing everything....LOL.

I think lots of men do their fair share around the home including the cooking.

Oooh I love Christmas and all it entails, even if sometimes it is alot of work for me. Wouldn't have it any other way.

My answer - we don't bother any more!!!!

Stopped giving gifts years ago, now we just give to the children in the family, the majority of that is money.

I get turned off big time by the mountains of sweets, mince pies, puddings and things which we are 'supposed' to buy/make/enjoy. I will cook a nice dinner, but only do the traditional thing if we have visitors, and even then I don't go overboard and prefer some nice fruit and cheese to all the sickly stuff. Don't like Xmas pud or mince pies anyway :-D.

My main 'effort' goes into 2 shoeboxes for the Link Romania charity, and those have to be done by early November.

I think many people go overboard at Chistmas which is fine if you can afford it and enjoy it, but all too often it fails to live up to the hype.
