Windows 7: Everybody seems to be wrapping Christmas gifts

Everybody seems to be wrapping Christmas gifts

Since a few days there is very little activity on the forum. Most people are probably busy with the preps for the holidays.

We stopped wrapping gifts since many years. We buy so much stuff during the year that any additional Christmas gifts would be uncalled for. But, of course, we have no children. In families with children that is probably another story.

I hope everybody is well and we will be back soon in full strength.

I never wrapped gifts besides the bag they come in
With so many people I have no clue what to get/ gift cards rule the day for the most I only narrow it down to Visa-Master card and who can miss

But yes this has been the slowest I've seen in a while,
Answers.com is still jumping but even it's a bit slower,
Cheers.

Yep, I was busy yesterday wrapping "the lady of the house" her presents and every year a large bag full off tissue paper with the item in it sounds better. The stores are like a zoo she told me when she came home from errands last evening. It is a busy time of the year with people traveling too. Today WE wrap up the rest of the families gifts so that will be fun. It is worth it though to see the look on their faces.....
A very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

My wife usually does the gift wrapping. As a matter of fact, after seeing me attempt it a few times, she won't let me near the gifts....
