Admit it already; Christmas shopping is no longer your thing! It’s tiresome trying to find the perfect gift among crowds of people at the mall. They push and shove and do everything but put you in the holiday spirit. Then, once you find a gift, you stand in line for eternity to purchase it. Ugh! Don’t even get me started on the holiday traffic.

On the 2nd day of Christmas, my true love gave to me… bauble ornaments!
