We ignore most holidays and don't ever decorate at all. Mostly, i find them inconvenient.

Used to go ALL out when my kids were young, but since they all moved away, The Holidays haven't been the same.

I decorated the last year my Mother was alive.She loved decorating for Christmas. She was delighted how it looked! I'm single and it doesn't matter much to do it without her coming by to see it.

What goes up must come down and be put away. Tastefully minimal.

We have a tree and a few decorations inside. Porch lights on a dusk sensing timer.

I learned my lesson the hard way. I no longer have ANY carry-over credit balances. Zero debt.

I got rid of all our credit cards years ago. The interest is ridiculous! You end up paying a lot more in interest than the the cost of the items purchased!

Why buy more than I can pay for? The federal government does that, which causes inflation.

My credit card pays me, in the form of points. I do not want to pay my credit card company.

I am a worry-wart and a negativr person, so half-empty would be the answer. But, what people don't see is that I am a pragmatist, or a realist. So, it's is also not half full or half empty, but right down the middle.
