Long ago, one began Christmas shopping as early as October 1. The thinking was that if you start your shopping early, you eventually will complete all of your shopping needs prior to the December rush.
That logic still applies. Consider sending your Christmas and Hanukkah gifts in October and November, instead of in December or January. You will be grateful for the sense of peace that you experience in December.
More importantly, you will be able to devote the month of December to celebrating God’s kingdom, and the return of our Messiah.
