Okay, now I think we can officially start getting ready for Christmas.
We’ve filled the neighbourhood kids’ baskets on Halloween. We’ve bought our poppies and hopefully explained Remembrance Day’s importance to our children so they don’t take the sacrifices made on their behalfs for granted. And since we celebrate our Thanksgiving in October, and Black Friday isn’t officially a thing up here, we can safely bust out our tinsel and trees free of neighbourly shade!
But you’re not getting something for nothing—Christmas is easily the most expensive holiday, and no one wants to be the parent who couldn’t get their kids something nice under the tree. Remember what Drake said?
“I’m more concerned with ████ thinkin’ ’bout Christmas in August
Do anything to buy gifts for their daughters”
— Drake, “Lord Knows”, Take Care (2011)
