HERE IS WHAT YOU'RE SAYING ON FACEBOOK: 

Chakra Penman: Finding it very hard this year to come up with ideas on what to get everyone with very little funds. Hubby and I are not buying for each other only concentrate on kids and food. Think we will have to try buying through out the year. can't wait to spend time with the family as that is what it is all about. A very Merry Christmas to all.

Beth Tyson: First I have to get my baby girls birthday sorted!! Poor December babies always seem to be passed over for their special day!! Christmas is done for me just have to wrap the presents! Woohoo! What a great time of the year!

Kasey Levien: Every year I tell myself next year I'll be more organised. And once again I have left it until the last minute. No doubt Christmas Eve will be here and I'll be doing the mad dash around the shops

Sheena Cherry: Got all our presents just haven't wrapped them yet and they don't go under the tree until Santa comes. Doesn't feel like Christmas this year as we only lost my Mum 4 1/2 months ago so I can't really get into the Christmas spirit but for our 3 boys I put on a brave face.

Have you started your Christmas shopping?
Have you started your Christmas shopping?

Jess Jeffery: Hopefully will be finishing this week, I have started my chrissy shopping during the year and bought bits and pieces so its not so expensive at the last minute. I wish everyone on here a very merry Christmas 

Crystal Lyness: Done and dusted as of today! Just have to wrap them all now

Glenda Jones: Half way through. With a new baby and 2 kids with birthdays near christmas it is really hectic for us.

Belinda Mason: Gunna wait until Christmas eve.

Melissa Murray: Finished getting every body presents today few I ordered online so they should be here this week and then got to wrap them all up

Kathy Couch: Still not finished but getting there slowly. But family together with good food and alot of laughs is the most important . My thoughts go out to all those less fortunate or in between homes with no family and those working making sure others have everything they need. Merry Christmas to all.
