Hoover at Christmas

Does any woman want housework gear and appliances at Christmas? And how do you get the new stove wrapped and under the tree?

Clothes, perfume, JEWLERY, gift cards, money...not appliances and cleaning supplies. Guys love gadgets, women not so much.

I'm importing it from Spain. I hope it gets here in time... It's a hand made NADA!! 😉

We buy what we want, when we want. Christmas in Greece isn't about gifts. (fortunately)

@Expat47 -- Wow, you've got it easy! I have to find appropriate gifts for St. Nicholas Day (goodies that fit into a shoe), one or two things for traditional Christmas Day here, main gifts of New Year's Day, and then some special little something (the "Angel's Gift") on Christmas Eve in January.

As far as a Hoover for Christmas -- I'm a guy, which basically means I've always been and will always be completely clueless when it comes to what women want, but I'm not so stupid that I'd buy a vacuum cleaner! (The Good Lord, in His infinite mercy, did not make me as dumb as I look.)

Christmas Eve in January??? Do you mean Twelfth Night?

If you use the Julian calendar to celebrate religious holidays, it is 14 days later than the Gregorian so Christmas day is in January.

Julie and Greg just can't get themselves synchronized can they?

@Cougar Allen -- As BMN said, different calendar. Christmas, old style, is January 7. I find it's particularly nice because the overly-commercialized buy-buy-buy season is over, so it's easy to focus on the true meaning of the day. It also seems to me to be more appropriate to use the traditional date rather than the modern "measure time by vibrations of an atom"/"every holiday should be on a Monday"/"conform or suffer" mentality.
