Thank you for sharing your struggle; this helps validate all our struggles! I learned from the movie Scrooged many years ago that I didn't just want it to be 'one day a year', so I keep a Christmas tree up all year round; just the ornaments change! And every day I look for some way to give. This frusrrates my children, but they put up with thier old man's 'excentrcities'. And they don't complain about the periodic 'just because I love you' gifts throughout the year.
